The new meal services are designed to be more flexible and contemporary, but not everyone is thrilled.
An Amtrak executive blamed the move on millennials — and plenty of them were quick to take issue with his logic.
People are not thrilled with Amtrak's decision to begin culling traditional dining-car services from some of its long-distance routes.
A change.org petition to keep the restaurant-style service on overnight trains east of the Mississippi River had earned more than 3,000 signatures by Monday afternoon, as news of the cuts took the internet by storm.
Gene Arensen, who started the petition, said the move signaled "the end of a 100 year tradition where dining cars served meals will end, the Midwest and West Coast trains are sure to follow.
And so will national rail travel, unless we speak up and be heard."
