I believe Amtrak does listen, at least that is the case in the PNW. They recently retrofitted their baggage cars to handle 12 unboxed bikes, rather than the 6 they previously handled.

Amtrak had a representative at the Oregon Active Transportation Summit meeting last April. This is a meeting where representative from a number of state and federal agencies, organizations, and businesses meet to network and resolve human powered transportation issues. Amtrak appears to be listening to cyclist.
