Amtrak in Clifton Forge

It is looking like Amtrak Service under President Trump’s proposed budget, will threaten passenger rail service to Clifton Forge and White Sulphur Springs. According to The Virginian Review, Trump’s preliminary 2018 budget calls for a 13 percent cut in federal funding for transportation. We won’t know the full budget until sometime next month. Amtrak is partially funded by the government, but is operated as a for profit corporation, and managed that way too. The Cardinal line, serves Clifton Forge, and it’s a long distance passenger train that runs three times a week between Penn Station in New York and Chidago’s Union Station.
