Is the Amtrak store going away?
Posted by GeoffS on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 10:38 AM

With all of the discussion on Amtrak taking away hot meals & dining

cars I wonder if anyone has noticed the Amtrak store seems to be

disappearing?  Try to buy a t-shirt with a train name on it is impossible

and so many of the other things in the store have lower prices and the

warning "while supplies last" attached to them.  I was in Union station

Chicago thursday 4/19 and in the lower level there was a gentleman in

a store front selling Amtrak stuff. T-shirts were just 12 bucks. Problem was

for all the shirts he had there was one small, a few large, and every other

one extra large or greater. It sure looked like a going out of business sale!

If it was (& I don't know) is this another way to save money? Ugh!!

Maybe the store is staying and the trains are going.

I don't know if this means anything or not.

The Amtrak store is loaded up and selling stuff again

EXCEPT there are no shirts with train names on them like

"Texas Eagle", only lapel pins!  Are the trains going the way

of the shirts?  Hope not!!
