I used to attend IMTS every two years also. It used to be pretty cool for a young man back in the early 80's when young female models were still acceptable.Every other year, we would attend the International Machine Tool Show at McCormick Place in Chicago. Would catch Amtrack in Racine, WI, and ride it to Chicago. We would snooze, look at the scenery, and watch all the congested traffic we were flying past. The fare was worth every penny. Also loved riding the train in Ireland.
As far as the train goes, I would bet that Amtrak was losing money on the ticket you bought. They have very few profitable lines.
