    Meal service may not be profitable, but clearly not providing meal service can be worse.

    Very sad and the wind from the moving train fanned the fire into other cars.

    Wow. Sad. So glad travel in North America is better regulated for passenger safety.

    According to the article, widgets of the type that exploded in this case are banned from trains in Pakistan.

    Yes. But obviously they are not enforcing the ban. :(

    Amtrak should be very concerned that they have eliminated serving meals in dining cars. Passengers may examine these things as options. :eek:
