    Oh wow I have never seen a crowd boarding in Temple. The attendant commented to me that the train is overcrowded. I had to grab a pic of this. The first pic is after most of the people had boarded and the remaining were waiting.

    We have reached Temple,TX and I will be signing off. This has been a great Thanksgiving vacation for me. I love riding Amtrak. I can honestly say that all Amtrak employees were pleasant and helped make my trip fun and enjoyable. Also all people I met on this trip were pleasant. I was...

    Here we are riding in the middle of the freeway. I used to live in Austin and used Mopac often. This a light traffic day. It’s usually jam packed and slow moving.

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    We are in Austin. Here are some pics as we approached the station. The river pic is the Colorado River. I noticed that an engineer off boarded. This train has a full load. The attendant told me he has 10 sleeping car passengers onboarding here in Austin. An announcement was just made that train...

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    We arrived in San Marcos at 8:52am. That means we are still 20 minutes late. The attendant pronounced the city’s name as San Marcus and not San Marcose. That is the way we pronounce here in Texas. So, the attendant must be a Texan. There is a city with the same name in California in San Diego...

    And we are departing exactly at 7:20am. Only 20 minutes late. They announced first call for breakfast will not be until 8:00am! I’m hungry! Hurry up Amtrak!

    The new sleeping car attendant is Ricardo. He just came by and introduced himself. He stated the easiest way to reach him is the call button. Sounds like he is a friendly and accessible attendant.

    Yep my sleeper is now the second car from the front. I better stay onboard and not risk getting left! Call for breakfast should be soon. It’s 6:52am and we are scheduled to leave at 7:00am. Since boarding just started, I imagine we will not leave on time.

    The Texas Eagle is now pulling back in. My sleeper should be up front now rather than the last car as it was before.

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    Ok I now see that I was attached to the Texas Eagle at the end. It left the platform to go and rearrange my sleeper and the coach from from the SL toward the front. I don’t understand why it has to be moved to the front. I’m happy that is because I will now be much closer to the dining car...

    The Sunset people are boarding. It’s not a lot of them. So, that means the big crowd I see are mostly Texas Eagle passengers.

    Ok they just announced that Sunset folks will board first.

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    Ok I’m not understanding. I got off the train and my car is still last. There has been no change. The train is moving now, now I see another train that is on tracks next to my train. I’ll see what happens next. In the mean time. Here are pics of all the folks waiting. I don’t know if they are...

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    We are now attached to the Texas Eagle and moving to the platform. It’s 6:10am. I think I hear doors are opening. I have about 50 minutes before we depart. Gonna go into the station and check things out.

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    We arrived at San Antonio at about 5:23am. My attendant shared with me that my sleeper and one coach car will separate. I am not allowed off the train until we have separated and attached to the Texas Eagle. At about 5:30am the power was cut off and shortly afterwards I could feel my sleeper car...

    I’m traveling to Texas today from LV via thruway bus & Texas Eagle

    I woke at 3:02 am and Siri said we are only 119 miles from San Antonio. My speedometer app said we are traveling close to 70mph. At this rate we will be very close to being on time into San Antonio, where we are expected at 4:50am. There my sleeping car and a coach car (maybe a 2nd coach too)...
