Events to Mark 20th Anniversary of Heartland Flyer

A ceremony is scheduled for June 14 in Oklahoma City to mark the 20th anniversary of Amtrak’s Heartland Flyer.

Another ceremony will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, after the arrival of the train there.

A rally is also planned for Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Expected to attend the ceremonies will be rail passenger advocates and others who helped push for the institution of the route in 1999.

A commemorative tee shirt will be available for sale to mark the anniversary.

The Heartland Flyer in part serves the route used by Amtrak’s Chicago-Houston Lone Star before it was discontinued in early October 1979 as part of a massive route restructuring.
