    Texas Eagle 21 @ Texarkana today Jul 1 - Pull’n an Observation car.

    Texas Eagle 21 @ Texarkana today Jul 1 - Pull’n an Observation car. I wouldn't draw any conclusions it’s back yet, probably just hitch’n a ride. And strange position. Still, nice to see it on the consist again.

    Pre Katrina Sunset ran LAX>ORD. It now terminates in NOL

    Where is this car located on the California Zephyr?

    Are there any recent Zephyr riders in the last week that noted the Sleeper car #'s and positions to the diner? Zepyhr is still running 2 Sleepers up front daily, and they have traditionally been Diner, 31 and 32. Many of us have been booked on 30 (mine coming up this weekend) but I've not seen...

    Texas Eagle with two units

    tempo-rail.org I have no idea how much contribution they provide to Amtrak changes. From my observation I find Railpassengers.org my best option to support. Also I should add the disclaimer that I'm not fond of the Eagle. Nothing to see CHI>DAL. It's simply my route home from Zephyr, Empire, or...

    Well Mr. Devil... "they're regional"✔ and "I used to eat them as a kid✔(and still do)" and "everyone should try them.✔(at least one)" :-) Guess it's a Southern thing... Grit's and Dr. Pepper ... I hold my mom responsible.

    Texasrailadvocates.org and Railpassengers.org (renamed NARP) is the best we've got now. At least we're on a route. I really miss the DAL>ORD route with my kids pre Katrina.

    There's my beef! (or the lack of 🥩).

    Texas Eagle with two units

    To further qualify this consist, is as it leave St Louis thru San Antonio (they drop off cars in St Louis) And they don’t alter in consist between St Louis and San Antinio. Pre-COVID Eagle ran with the 7 days a week 21 with 1 Sleeper up front, Diner, Obs, and 2 Coach's and added the 3 days a...

    Texas Eagle with two units

    I authored the XLS and the Information comes from the virtualrailfan Fort Worth Tower 55 cam. (for the Eagle) Eagle ends in DAL as this is home. Eagle is just my way "home" from CHI where all my Westbound LD routes connect. I can validate all but the actual car # assigned to the Sleepers.

    Fire stops Coast Starlight. Bridge burned (6/29/21)

    Fingers crossed the bridge is fine. Amtrak may be bypassing the area out of precaution due to any burning of the farms around the town of Weed just to the Southwest in the fire map image you provided. A train full of loaded old folks. 😏 (disclaimer – not serious)

    Maybe not... Eagle has run 2 Engines 4 days in a row now. --- and for the recent running of the consist, you'll have a 77% chance by booking B or D to be able to sit on the couch and watch the scenery come towards you ;-) (never 100%)

    Fire stops Coast Starlight. Bridge burned (6/29/21)

    Looks like the fire will affect todays 11/14 too *SERVICE DISRUPTION: Coast Starlight Train 14, departing Los Angeles on 6/29 through 7/1, will operate as a bus bridge between Sacramento (SAC) and Klamath Falls (KFS) due to wildfires on the route. Customers scheduled at intermediate stations...

    I find they can be very flexible. I almost always order the 3 Egg Omelet with grits instead of potatoes. I’ve never been rebuffed. 50% of the time it still comes with potatoes and a bowl of grits on the side. Sometimes I skip the menu and ask for 2 bowls of grits and a croissant. 👩‍🍳👍 🥣🥣

    Now I thought "polenta" was a strange form of mashed potatoes. I did not care for them. Listed on the new menu: >> and your choice of oatmeal or grits I am looking forward to seeing them back. It's a southern staple.

    Just do the Western LD routes I ride. Check Amtrak status via APP for today to get arrival time. (18 seconds.) Use a station vitualrailcam on the route and point DVR to that time... (32 seconds.) Log Sleeper direction (10 seconds) Enjoy my hobby - priceless! ... and as of a matter of...

    Timetables returning in September?

    And we were OK with that back then too... can't count how many repeated days I'd check that mailbox until the day it arrived. Can I barrow yours to decode the Amtrak website?

    Timetables returning in September?

    Dang-it! I can't find mine. Where do I send my 2 box tops and .25 for S&H? I'd really like to see these continue.
