You may have missed the part where they surreptitiously trademarked previously untrademarked names. Quite different than acquisition of intellectual property as part of a vendor contract, not to mention Curry Corp would have held the name trademarks prior to Delaware North, had they ever been in play. This is simple theft from US citizens, not dissimilar to what Y'all Qaeda is trying to pull in rural Oregon at the moment. Except the tailored suits.

As to a comparison against Amtrack, uh, what? No idea how that applies here and in any case, Amtrack would be doing just fine if they weren't constantly under assault from the sociopath wing of congress and didn't have junior track rights to every freight they encounter on shared lines. We don't have superior passenger rail because it's not a priority, not because it can't be run well.
