19. ten years ago I took an Amtrak journey from Boston to California across
the southwest. It was a delightful, relaxing and enjoyable trip. On one of the stops in the south west,can't remember quite where, the train was boarded by agents with dogs on leashes that went from car to car, stopping most especially in the baggage storage area at the end of the car. I asked them what they were doing and was told that they were "training" the dogs.
