Derived from "Squillionaire," "squill" is a dereogatory term for anyone who accumulates, flaunts, hoardes, or otherwise posseses wealth beyond reason.
Uugh, look at that squill parking his Lambo in the bike lane.

This fucking squill bought herself a Gucci handbag last week and gave $5 to my GoFundMe for insulin.

My landlord raised the rent again but they still wont fix the leaky roof. What a squill!

Amtrak is the sole intercity rail provider in the United States. It has many trains that carry passengers to over 500 different cities and towns across the country. Sadly it is usually very late and can sometimes be inconvenient. Amtrak was founded on May 1st 1971. Their main route is the Northeast Corridor from Boston to Washington D.C. going through New York City and Philadelphia. The Northeast Corridor and the Keystone Corridor from Philadelphia to Harrisburg are the only two electrified routes in all of Amtrak’s system. Here is a list of the locomotives they are used by Amtrak currently and their road numbers:
Siemens ACS-64 (600-670)
GE-{P42DC (1-207, 700-717, 800-843)
Siemens SC-44 (2101–2122, 1400–1401, 1403–1407, 4601–4633)
GE-Dash 8-32BWH (2051-2052)
EMD-F59PH (1810, 1859, 1869, 1871, 1893, 1984)
EMD-F59PHI (1755, 1797, 2001–2015)
Amtrak is loved by many railfans across America.

A low security transportation meathod in the United States which neglects serving several states.(Yes they pretend that Alaska, Haiwii, South Dakota and Wyoming do no exist). Amtrak opperated trains ranging in age about fourty years. This system is a bit slow for trains but extremly pleasn't to travel upon.
I took Amtrak from LA to New York, it only took six months (of course it was a month late, it is Amtrak).

Basketball: A traveling violation

Travel: The government-owned corporation that operates the Acela from Boston to DC.
Basketball: The ballhandler raised his pivot foot, and put it back down without passing or shooting - the ref has to call Amtrak on that!

Travel: He's taking the Amtrak Acela Express from New Haven to Penn Station instead of Metro-North to save time.

A train operator in the United States. Also a government failure (as of 2020). People only ride it for scenic views, sentimental value, or rarely, actual transportation.
Joe Biden took the Amtrak Acela from Wilmington, DE to Washington.
