All Aboard The Texas Eagle [VIDEO]

Texas Eagle

Americans have had a love affair with trains since 1826 when they watched England develop their rail system. By 1831, the first U.S. railroad, the Mohawk and Hudson, began operating. I can only imagine the excitement people had as they watched the huge steam locomotive charge down the tracks, plumes of steam filling the air. Now you can experience the magic of rail travel all over again when you hop aboard Amtrak’s Texas Eagle at the new Hope, Ark. station!

But where can you go aboard this awesome train? The Texas Eagle rockets toward tons of amazing destinations, including Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, San Antonio and even as far away as Los Angeles. Check out the map below to see all the other towns and cities you can visit between the Windy City and the City of Angels.

But wait, have you ever taken a train ride before? Is your experience with trains limited to those you’ve watched while waiting at a railroad crossing or perhaps those miniature locomotives you played with as a child? Then watch the two videos below to catch a glimpse of the sights you might see aboard the Texas Eagle and a tour of what a sleeping car is like!
