The Texas Eagle

The Texas Eagle is a  passenger train operated by Amtrak in the central and western United States. Trains run daily between Chicago, Illinois, and San Antonio, Texas, and continue to Los Angeles, California, , three days a week (incorporated as part of the Sunset Limited)…. The trip from Chicago – San Antonio  Takes 32 hours 25 minutes With the trip from Chicago – Los Angeles taking 65 hours 20 minutes –  The train travels  through the Land of Lincoln, across the Mississippi River, and through the Ozarks to Little Rock and the piney woods of East Texas. On to Dallas, through Austin  and finally to San Antonio, where the legend of the Alamo and the Riverwalk attract people from all over the world. Further west the train travels close to the Mexican border, and through  southwestern deserts ..Watch grand views of Californias  mountains pass by your train window before arriving at a Pacific portal of Los Angeles.

AMTRAK TOP SHOTS  This is a collection of around 1200 of the best images i have found of Amtrak trains and stations.. I have invited these photos from individual photographers on Flickr …. There are some fine Images  in here if you have time to look :With Thanks Loco Steve….

Thanks to all the photographers that have posted photos for these sites  on Flickr –  Hope you enjoy the images ….. Steve

( I would like to point out that this is a personal project and has no affiliation with Amtrak or Flickr.Although .. I do Like Riding Amtrak Trains and spend lots of time on Flickr … The linked groups were all started and managed by myself and i have contributed to most of the groups myself with the exception of Amtrak Top Shots …..  I hope you all enjoy the photos .. The main reason for these pages is for people to have a visual image collection  –  where they can find where they took photos from ‘ If they have forgotten ‘ – Or to relive their trips – or to see where they might like to go and visit..  There may be more groups in the future but it has taken two years to get this together  )
