As an Amtrak fan I was interested in Arthur Frommer's "Railing Against the System" [On a Budget, Oct. 26]. It is true that the government digs in its heels against funding Amtrak realistically. I take the San Joaquin trains often to Sacramento. I have joined the Train Riders Assn. of California, which is fighting for adequate funding for Amtrak. To this end, I have contacted the president, both my senators and my congresswoman. If more people did this, something could be done to remedy this deplorable situation.
