Walsh Calls On Amtrak to Reconsider Toys for Tots Train Cancellation

“I strongly believe that Amtrak should reconsider its decision to cancel the Capital Region Toys for Tots charter train this year. Having ridden the train last year, I have seen firsthand the need, and the positive impact upon our Capital Region and North Country communities. Policies are needed, but this one presented by new management is ill-conceived and puts the joy and holiday spirit of tens of thousands of children in the region at stake. I encourage my colleagues at the state and federal level, as well as the many people who will be affected by this decision, to let Amtrak know that we are disheartened and that it is not too late to reverse course,” said Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I,REF-Ballston)
