Bikes: The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996, although I modify it throughout the year for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

I can't believe this simple solution was right under my nose all this time! So now a day trip to ride, say, the Schuylkill is a possibility. And I suppose I could find a similar AMTRAK alternative to get me and my bike to Boston, as well? Thank you.

Anyway, my larger point was that, if AMTRAK would open up bicycle service to other places along its many corridors - even limited to certain times of year, certain days, certain hours, etc - they would have an opportunity to attract many new customers. Obviously, someone at AMTRAK knows better than I do, though.
