Passengers of the Amtrak Southwest Chief face the prospect of losing service to select towns in Colorado, New Mexico and Kansas on account of an antiquated right-of-way that is in need of repair. Track owners BNSF have stated that they have no interest in repairing the tracks solely for the sake of passenger service and, in any case, would cost more than $200 million. The National Association of Railroad Passengers has been on the case, asking the states to pitch in and repair affected portions of the railroad, lest Amtrak reroutes the Chief through a route BNSF is more inclined to maintain. NARP is asking those who live in the above three states to write to their governors and ask that their governments provide the necessary funding. While on the subject, Amtrak re-launched the fare search engine on its website so that customers can select one of four different ticketing tiers that allow for greater savings on rail travel.
