    Late Texas Eagle/422(02)

    Today's #422(22) just departed Austin 3 +hours Late due to a 4+ Hour Late #2 into San Antonio this morning! Small consist, no Sightseer Lounge or Transdorm. Heavy UP Freight congestion on the AUS-Taylor and BNSF TPL-FTW will probably cause more delays.

    Sleeper train revival in Europe

    You probably won't have time to go to Dennys during the Switching in Ssn Antonio from #2 to #22 as the Sunset Ltd is usually Late into SA. Southbound on #21/#421 is different with the 3-4 Hour Dwell time. The Eagle ( #422/#22) leaves for Chicago @ 7am after the quick switching.

    I would think the good folks in India would react the same way since Trains are such an important part of India's Daily life!

    The obsession with the past is hurting the future of passenger rail

    Portland( Oregon) has a good set up @ the Airport also. Were hopeful that when the New Line to the Austin Airport is built it will terminate next to or even in the Terminal.
