Delawareians will soon be forced to follow in the footsteps of Amtrak Joe
One of the nicknames of US President Joe Biden, by which he is known, is Amtrak Joe. railwaynews.
He got the nickname after riding the train every day between Washington, D.C. and his home in Delaware. Sadly, he lost his wife and daughter in a car accident in 1972 and was later sworn into the Senate by his son's hospital bed. For the next 36 years, he reportedly traveled by train every day to return home to his sons.
In 2010, he wrote an article for Amtrak Arrive magazine titled "Why America Needs Trains", which was later republished by HuffPost. In it, he described both his emotional connection to the train ride, saying it enabled him to become a senator in the first place, as well as climate change issues and congestion.
Delaware administration spokesman Jim Salmon said he was "disappointed" by Frontier's decision to leave New Castle, but confident the airport's commercial services would "succeed." DRBA recently completed an estimated $2 million renovation to accommodate the Frontier for its 2021 return.
