Amtrak Chief Executive Officer Wick Moorman says things will only get worse, not better, in the wake of recent service interruptions in the New York area, some of which were attributed to Amtrak infrastructure deficiencies.  In an interview with Bloomberg News, Moorman said "We don't see a catastrophic failure; we just see continued . . . deterioration."  The Bloomberg report was widely distributed and appeared on the front page of the Star-Ledger on April 21. Asked what the solution is, Moorman said the only solution is the $23 billion Gateway infrastructure improvement project championed by Amtrak, which would take many years to implement. "The fundamental problem is: What is plan B?" Moorman said. "I don't know." A new tunnel under the Hudson, a key component of Gateway, would be in service in 2025 at the earliest, even if funding cuts proposed by the White House are restored. Moorman said that the White House proposals, which included ending support for Amtrak's long distance train services -- supposedly so Amtrak could concentrate more on its Northeast Corridor and state-supported regional trains -- were ill-advised and unlikely to be realized, citing false economic expectations and Amtrak's good relationship with Congress, which in many states rests on its long-distance services.  Moorman said overall reductions would probably be "only a nick" at most.
