Kind of a Dog Whistle that you can actually hear… and has genuine meaning. Okay, more like a regular old whistle. Like a train. Loud.
“But don’t worry… we’re working on the cars too. We’ve been doing it quietly for years.”

On the upside, it’s FAR safer because most of the time it’s not moving.
My experiences with Amtrak are similar to sitting in your car… while it’s in the garage… running.
