I'll be on the inagural westbound run from NOL to LAX as a show of support for Amtrak.
This is good news for Houston as well, which will see its first Amtrak service since 8/27. It amazes me that the 4th largest city in America only sees six-times-weekly Amtrak service. If the government was pro-rail, they would remedy this. But they are not, so they won't.
