"Amtrak 90" plan

I just came across an interesting report called "Amtrak 90" put together back in 1982 which proposed a new route structure.   It is a much better mesh than what we have today, even featuring cross-border links to Winnipeg, Manitoba and Calgary, Alberta, though I consider a few links to be missing (Rochester, MN and Green Bay, WI, for example).  But then again, the plan only looked at an 8-year time horizon.

Anyway, some weekend reading.
