"Trump’s proposed 2021 budget delivered to Congress on Monday includes reductions in funding to the United States’ busiest rail corridor, the Northeast, to $325 million from $700 million. Funding for Amtrak’s long-distance trains would decrease to $611 million from $1.3 billion under the plan, which intends to phase out aid for long-distance service."

It will never get past the House.

There is a connection between Peggy Lee and railroading:

Her father was a station agent for the Midland Continental Railroad. As the link mentions, she lived, for a time, in the station depot. The depot was in Wimbledon, North Dakota.

The Midland Continental Railroad was originally designed to be a trunk line between Winnipeg, MB and Galveston, TX.
