Summary:

Amtrak issued bulletins in response to cockroach and bedbug sightings in November 2008 and June 2007, respectively, describing how train maintenance personnel should handle the sanitization process; the more recent bulletin notes that more stringent cockroach-remediation programs are being used at two "heavy maintenance facilities."

Notes:

TheSmokingGun.com noted that the Amtrak bulletins were released in response to a FOIA request.
