Amtrak will begin scuttling more than a fifth of its rail passenger service and firing 5,500 workers in the next two months to address a mushrooming deficit and the prospect of reduced federal subsidies. Officials said Wednesday that they would begin reducing the frequency of some routes on Feb. 1 and start eliminating others two months later. "In the past we have tried to be every place all the time," Amtrak President Thomas M. Downs said during a news conference to announce the cuts.

Southern Pacific Rail to Cut 800 More Jobs: The nation's sixth-largest freight rail company said it has lost about $40 million in the last two months from the Midwestern floods and will lay off additional workers to cut costs. The San Francisco-based company had already announced it would lay off 1,600 workers in 1993. The added reductions will come from both management and labor forces. The company will also furlough about 950 maintenance employees until early next year.
