Track Work Disrupts Texas Eagle

Operations of Amtrak’s Texas Eagle are being disrupted through today (March 22) due to track work being performed in Texas by Union Pacific.

Passengers traveling between Texarkana, Arkansas, and Mineola, Texas, will ride chartered buses.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said Trains 21/421 will detour between Texarkana and Mineola missing stops at Marshall and Longview.

Passengers to those points, and also also Shreveport, Louisiana, will detrain at Mineola and board Amtrak Thruway Bus 6121 to their destination. Bus 6121 will originate at Mineola instead of Longview.

Passengers scheduled to connect with Thruway service at Longview will also detrain at Mineola. Thruway Bus 6021 to Houston will board passengers at Mineola instead of Longview.

Passengers scheduled to board at Shreveport, Marshall and Longview will be picked up by Thruway Bus 6421 and carried to Mineola to board Train 21/421.

Train 21/421 may be delayed up to 15 to 20 minutes at Mineola to hold for connecting buses.

    THIS STATEMENT ABOUT THE TRAIN 21 BEING LATE UNTIL MARCH 21, IS FALSE. IT IS NOW APRIL 21,2019, AND IT IS STILL ARRIVING IN MINEOLA, TEXAS 3-4 HOURS LATE. AT LEAST YOU COULD DO IS PUT OUT A RECENT UPDATE ON WHEN TRAIN 21 WILL BE BACK ON TRACK WITH THE TIME. NEWSPAPERS ARE REPORTING HOW BAD IT IS!!!
