I keep hearing more and more rumors about MN taking over the operation of Shore Line East trains. Are there any facts to back this up, or is it a lot of speculation?

I have heard an emphatic YES! from some management people at Metro-North who say October (coincidal with a timetable change?), and I have heard a dertermined NO! from some management people at Metro-North who say Amtrak will remain the operator.

Until we get an official announcement either way, it's anyone's guess.
