Thanks!I used to live near Taylor, and have traveled Amtrak out of the Taylor stop. Taylor is pretty small, and there is not much there. The "station" is a covered open pavilion with a couple of picnic tables along side the Union Pacific building. If you use google maps and plug in the address: 199 E. 1st Street, Taylor, TX, you'll see what I mean. Also, Taylor has an Enterprise Rent-A-Car business out on the west side of town, if you need to rent a car. Temple may be a better bet. I also used to live in Houston and traveled out of there occasionally. The station is right downtown in a sketchy area, and the traffic is horrendous. I'd go with Temple.
