First Leg: A Ride on the Texas Eagle
My recent travels took me to Washington for the semi-annual meeting of the Council of Representatives of NARP, the National Association of Railroad Passengers. And, of course, I took that opportunity to get in some long distance train travel.
After the usual long, dreary red-eye from Maui to Dallas, I taxied to downtown Fort Worth to catch the Texas Eagle to Chicago, an overnight trip.
The Fort Worth station was a pleasant surprise: modern, clean and conveniently located. And, reflecting an enlightened trend, it’s an intermodal facility, with Amtrak trains, commuter rail, light rail and buses all coming and going at the one location. There is even a rental car office there.
