The "hole" metaphor works on a much wider scale than just the rail system. But, 'doughnut' isn't the hole I think of when it comes to transportation in Pittsburgh.MH
"Additionally, Amtrak does not own the rail line between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg as it does in the eastern part of the state, meaning track owner Norfolk Southern Corp. would need to be a part of any upgrade plans."The key sentence in the article you linked to. It seems Amtrak *is* thinking of extending the upgrade, but Norfolk Southern would have to be part of it. It isn't just Amtrak's fault.
