You gotta start somewhere. Amtrak is probably more used in the NE than anywhere else, so it's logical to start here.

Also, many Congresscritters from MA, NY, CT, PA, NJ, DE, MD ride the NE corridor trains as they commute to work in Wash,DC. And Amtrak depends greatly on subsidies to keep operating.
