In the United States, passenger trains are unfortunately very delayed in many areas. A considerably large amount of these have been caused by rail companies giving freight trains priority over passenger trains on their tracks. Amtrak, for example, may operate over tracks owned by Norfolk Southern, CSX, or Union Pacific. There have been many disputes regarding this, so who, in your opinion, should have track priority and why?
