Cargo does not complain nor care if it rides in the cold, heat or dark. To eliminate a service that is already in place and working seems odd. But then again, we have seen other oddball cuts such as dining options.I guess if you’re only going 3x/week, you can’t be as reliable with a delivery day. And you definitely can’t take on any time-sensitive or perishable freight if your Express shipment involves more than one train.
Or maybe Flynn & Co just are trying to shed “non-core” aspects of Amtrak’s business model. I wouldn’t be surprised if Amtrak Express didn’t come back, just like chef-prepared meals.
