I think the response would be phenomenal, especially during the fair weather months.
What is the factual basis of your belief? You can today take a combination of SEPTA and NJT between Philly and NYC for probably about half of what Amtrak's lowest fare is? And there is already at least one train/day between Philly and NYC (don't know about Boston, but likely) with checked baggage service, which means you can take a bike.
