Amtrak's ridership is up; its losses are down; it has a capital investment program for fiscal year 1974 bigger than that of most Class I railroads. The 13 contracting railroads are operating more Amtrak trains than they did two years ago. There are still problems: poor on-time performance and the 13 railroads are not always anxious to take that extra step toward better service. Amtrak seems to be there not only to stay -- but to grow.
