Excursion run idea seems premature

Plans for a train ride to New York have jumped the tracks. Running a one-day train excursion from Allentown to New York seemed like such a good idea that when an Amtrak official suggested it in December, people from three states began inquiring about tickets.

Apparently, the idea was better in concept than execution, because the train ride Amtrak executive Joe McHugh said could happen by April not only hasn’t happened, it probably won’t — at least not any time soon.
