I rode Amtrak once a few years ago during a short trip from Michigan to Milwaukee with a change over in Chicago. I rode in coach and the ride was nice, but the first leg was delayed by a couple of hours because commercial freight trains have priority. Instead of getting to Chicago with an hour to spare, I arrived right before my next train was set to depart and had to run from one end of the station to the other, with some business man who has done this before, to catch the next train on time.

I talked to a couple of people displaced by Katrina who were disappointed that FEMA took them to Michigan. I understood why.
