Re-asserting a previous arrangement does not sound the same to me as "[using] their tracks however they please". I imagine Amtrak is trying this strategy because they think they might win due to the unique suspended status.Congratulations (and with all due respect and some good humor) ... You're all wrong ...
49 USC $24308: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/49/24308 is what applies ... I believe this will be the first time since the mid 1990s (Downeaster) that Amtrak will be using the STB pathway to compel access.
