I get how hard it is to run a railroad in bad times but why do they struggle so much in good times? Is it really that hard to add a train or two or a car or two? Aren't these honchos making a quarter mil a year?

The problem is funding. There's no dedicated funding for Caltrain, so money is always tight. In this day and age Caltrain has not enough seats/capacity, no WiFi on board, and too limited a schedule.

In the meantime, we as a society have decided to spend our transportation resources on high speed rail and, frankly, too many highways.


The society got fooled by high speed rail and woke up too late to do anything about it.

+ 1/2 and - 1/2 to another sufferer. I too suffer but we are not spending too much on highways. Kill high-speed rail and spend it on Caltrain and roads.
