Senate helps Amtrak with a little love

The US Senate passed a bill that would increase funding to Amtrak by a veto-proof margin. Amtrak has seen increases in passengers but not much in the way of funds. The train company is saddled with debt while trying to improve an aging infrastructure.

With any luck, this will lead to improved service, expanded rail capacity, and extended lines into new cities.
