Texas Eagle

Texas Eagle Route Map
Ready for a Real Adventure? Let Amtrak Take You Deep in the Heart of Texas.

Hop aboard the Texas Eagle, traveling daily between Chicago and San Antonio, taking you through major cities such as from Austin to Dallas. Connecting service between San Antonio and Los Angeles is available three times a week via the Sunset Limited.

Wind through the Land of Lincoln, across the Mississippi River, and through the Ozarks to Little Rock and the piney woods of East Texas. Onward to colorful, cosmopolitan Dallas, through Austin (home of the University of Texas), and finally to San Antonio, where the legend of the Alamo and the Riverwalk attract people from all over the world.

Services on the Texas Eagle include Superliner Sleeping Car accommodations, a Dining Car serving fresh complete meals and spectacular views from our renowned Sightseer Lounge Car.

Passengers traveling on trains 421 and 422 to and from points between Chicago and Los Angeles will experience an overnight layover in San Antonio, TX, ranging from 7 to 9.5 hours in order to accommodate train coupling operations. Passengers are welcome to remain onboard during this layover or may detrain if they wish. Access to train cars may be limited and temporary power outages will occur, including loss of air conditioning. For more detailed information on the Texas Eagle visit the Texas Eagle State Site.
