Returning On Amtrak

Posted by on July 13, 2017

The day started early. We left our final hotel at 6:15am and walked a couple of hundred yards to the train station next door. It was raining, but fortunately no heavily.

Our train was on time. We were in business class on this train. It was about a five hour trip to Chicago.

We arrived into Chicago Union Station and went to leave our bags in the Metropolitan Lounge. Then we walked down the street to Lou Mitchell’s for lunch.


Our next train, the Texas Eagle, boarded and left right on time at 1:45. As usual, we are in sleeper. We have two small roomettes.


We just hung out and relaxed and let Amtrak do the driving. We eventually went to dinner and all had steak and shrimp.

We had an extended stop in St Louis.



After that stop, I made everyone’s bed and time to get some sleep to the sways of the train.
