Mr Norman. You may have missed it but BOS, PVD, New Haven all had baggage positios posted in the employment e mails. That may mean more baggage service but that is just speculation.
Mr. West Point, I'm at a total loss to understand why Amtrak is doing such? With resumption of 66-67 without Baggage service, that means there is no longer any of such over the New Haven or the B&A.
Now if they would return 448-9 to an ALB-BOS connection, they would no longer need to have mechanical forces at BOS qualified on Viewliner Sleepers, would have no need to stock linens, and have no need for Cafe menu items that are only sold/comped on this train.
Really volks, Boston has done "quite well" with the political clout Amtrak enjoys up there. Just think the electrification (I'm not saying that was a waste), through Acelas even though the business is hardly as strong as over the PRR, and not having NHV-BOS become an "important feeder" such as NHV-SPF, NYP-ALB, and PHL-HBG.
