Re: Union Station is a death trap at night - can DC do anything?

Christopher Backley

To the OP:

You may want to report this to the Office of Inspector General for both Amtrak and the US DOT.

- previous message -
Union Station is owned by Amtrak and United States Department of Transportation. The DOT owns the station building itself and the surrounding parking lots, while Amtrak owns the platforms and tracks through the Washington Terminal Company a nearly wholly owned subsidiary (99.9% controlling interest). I would follow up with the Feds, not the DC government.  The Feds would be liable in the event of an unfortunate occurrence. 
Amtrak is owned by the federal government which owns all of its preferred stock and outstanding shares. Couldn't someone in the Administration be contacted? After all, isn't Biden Amtrak's most famous de facto spokesperson?
