Attached is an article from the Post Star. It talks about a second costumer for the tailings at Tahawus and the issues that are delaying the start of the 1st contract. It also touches on the fact that even though they reduced the number of trains they run, attendance is up 25% over last year. Hopefully the link works.

By the way I rode the train today, and coach was sold out and all but 4-6 seats in the dome were filled. People in the dome were spend a lot of money on food and drink.
Only three private cars parked on the station siding in Saratoga attached to an Amtrak GP unit (don't know exact model).
