Trump cuts could end Amtrack in Cumberland

April 7th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News reports President Donald Trump’s proposed federal budget includes cuts for all long-distance Amtrak routes, including the Capitol Limited line that passes through Cumberland. The budget cuts, if approved by Congress, would impact 15 Amtrak routes, including the Auto Train from Lorton, Virginia, to Florida and the Washington to Chicago route through Cumberland. Cumberland Mayor Brian Grim said possible cuts to Amtrak, and to federal Appalachian Regional Commission and Community Development Block Grant funding, would be devastating for the area.
