Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Refurbished high-speed trains and spruced-up stations may greet Amtrak commuters from Boston to Washington as the U.S. passenger railroad gains support from frequent-rider Joe Biden in President-Elect Barack Obama's administration.

Vice President-Elect Biden, who commuted on Amtrak daily between Wilmington, Delaware and Washington during his Senate career, may be part of the most ``train-friendly administration in history,'' Dukakis said. He and Obama ``understand the economy itself cries out'' for rail investment, the former Massachusetts governor said.

I really hope that this administration comes through and helps get us away from the automobile and also off of oil.
