Where else could you see heavy competition for passengers in US, like those I mentioned in "Subject"?

The Gulf Mobile and Ohio (former Alton line), the Illinois Central, and the Wabash all competed for the Chicago-St. Louis passenger market back in the pre-Amtrak era. (I hope I didn't leave anybody out.)
