    Default One More Amtrak Question. (Operating Crews)

    After the accident I wondered, does Amtrak base its crews at a home terminal like a freight railroad does. For instance, down here crews go from Pine Bluff, AR to Shreveport, LA or Big Sandy TX. And from Longview TX, back to North Little Rock. Does Amtrak have a similar set up like this or is it totally different.

    On the Texas Eagle, Marshall is a crew change point (bout 20 miles away from Longview) for Amtrak crews. I've not asked but I'd imagine the crews are based much the same way a freight railroad does it...every time the Eagle stops in Marshall a new engine crew gets on board...so yeah.
