probably more frustrating than anything else. I take the train between Wilmington De and Washington DC frequently. Amtrak does a great job keeping the tracks clear. There is always a tree-mendous amount of wood (tree trunks) just left at the edge of the railroad's right-of-way. I have no idea what amtrak's policy is on the wood, its moot anyways, as I wouldnt be in a position to bring it home. Its simply massive volumes of wood along the tracks. A lot espically near Baltimore. The areas the train goes through in baltimore are horribly depressed and could surely use the fuel... however, I suspect the people would have no interest in taking the wood, otherwise it would have happened regardless of Amtrak's policy. A lot of fuel going to waste.
