Arcadia Valley Station Work to Start Soon

Construction is expected to begin soon on a platform in Arcadia Valley, Missouri, that will be used by Amtrak’s Texas Eagle.

The platform and its accompanying fencing and light fixtures are expected to match the design of the former Missouri Pacific passenger station next to the Union Pacific tracks used by the Chicago-San Antonio train.

Amtrak 4The Eagle is expected to stop in Arcadia Valley at about 10:30 p.m. southbound and 4:30 a.m. northbound once service begins.

Community leaders are attempting to recruit volunteers to care for the station, which will not be staffed by an Amtrak agent.

The platform will be 300 feet in length. The station will have a lift for wheelchair access, and ADA compliant sidewalks, entrances, bathrooms and parking.

Passengers will be able to wait in the former MoPac station.
