62. Yup
I can fly to Chicago (from east coast) in two-plus hours. Or I can take a train that gets there in about 18 hours. Or take the bus and get there next week.

Train is simply not a viable alternative unless you're on vacation and have two weeks to kill. For today's business travelers, no one is going to spend 18 hours on a train each way. I don't care how cheap it is.

East coast Amtrak is fine -- a lot of big cities close together that make it financially sound (Washington - Baltimore - Philly - New York - Boston). But longer trips? Nope!
