“On Amtrak, we don’t care if your socks match or not because we are never going to see your feet,” said Marc Magliari, Public Relations Manager for Amtrak Government Affairs and Corporate Communications. “Amtrak offers roomy travel and is friendly to people with disabilities. Our trains are reliable and are built for going farther with roomier seating and options to ride in coach, a private roomette or bedroom.” On Amtrak’s Texas Eagle, enjoy traveling free from the hustle and bustle of highway traffic and take a walk to the Sightseer Lounge. With its domed windows, riders experience unlimited views of the passing countryside and expansive Texas skies.

You can eat on the train and save time as you travel,” Magliari said. For your next trip, watch the world roll by from the roomy comfort of a train.
