Amtrak invests $7.3 billion in new fleet of modern trains to service Northeast

Amtrak's new fleet of trains will service the Northeast Corridor and feature upgrades such as hybrid batteries.

Amtrak did this without spending $1 trillion on infrastructure. Trillion dollars is all about rewarding 40+ years of patronage and unlocking campaign cash for 2022 at your expense. Real needs get through Congress. Trillion dollar projects about pork, patronage.
That's really not a lot of many in today's value. Besides, these trains are a failing mode of transportation. They have been for years.
