Well I have now completed some follow-up on one of my previous postings, regarding the new security procedures put in place by Amtrak.

First of all, the changes are very visible. There is an increase in uniformed officers and K-9 support units, in the stations and on the trains. I spoke to a number of the uniformed officers and they sounded pleased and motivated by the new approaches.

Second, on the trains and at each seat there is a tastefully done laminated card explaining the new measures.

Finally and probably most important to many, I saw no delays caused by the added security, in fact my train to New York and my return arrived a little ahead of schedule.

Nice work Amtrak.
