Yeah, especially Amtrak should make much more advertisement.
Only one company lacks: I didn't find any modern BNSF commercial. !*don-know!*

I don't like the CSX commercials, but vintage ATSF are pretty good. Anyway no modern BNSF to find.

New (started airing Jan. 11, 2011) BNSF commercial:

Here is the 2010 CSX commercial. I like it, better then the other "How Tomorrow Moves" ones:

Wow, that are two very nice finds.
You are right, this is the first relatively good CSX commercial.
Thank you. !*salute*!

EDIT: I especially like the fact that BNSF seems the be in favor of developing a better passenger rail system in the US. !!*ok*!! (http://www.bnsf.com/media/video/?file=/media/video/video/BNSF_Anthem_COM.flv&title=Watch%20Our%20New%20TV%20Spot#%23subtabs-1)

Yes, nice stuff! There were several other good videos about BNSF in that one link, not just the commercial (which was good, BTW)
