    The biggest problem for ACES was…’Tell us in the comments below.

    The Atlantic City Expressway Service debuted in February 2009 but struggled in its opening year and showed a profit loss instead of a gain.

    Two years later, the train decreased its service from year round to just spring and summer service.

    Just this past week, the Associated Press reported the three casinos that subsidized the train – Caesar’s, Harrah’s and the Borgata – pulled the plug.
