I believe that much more can be done to improve US domestic rail service despite the legitimate reasons you cite. Canada has a great transcontinental rail service in the sparsely populated west.
I'm not sure I would say "Canada has a great transcontinental rail service in the sparsely populated west." It is a nice scenic drive but aside from major centres service is spotty.

Like Germany, VIA also runs to the minute - departures at least There is decent service in the Quebec City - Windsor corridor; we often took the Toronto-Montreal train. And yes, you could set your watches to VIA leaving on time. Arriving ontime - not so much.
