Terrell County, Texas / United States – June 2, 2020: Amtrak’s Texas Eagle train travels through the desert near Sanderson, Texas. • Licensed Image © 2020 Adobe Stock Images.

Taylor is connected to Amtrak’s system by way of the Texas Eagle. The Texas Eagle begins daily in San Antonio and three times a week it begins in Los Angeles; it ends each journey in Chicago. (Or vice-versa.) The entire journey is 65 hours and stops along the way include, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Tucson, El Paso, San Antonio, Austin, Fort Worth, Dallas, Texarkana, Little Rock, Poplar Bluff, St. Louis, Springfield, and finally Chicago. If you have the time, I highly recommend the experience/journey; but do yourself a favor and buy the sleeper room upgrade.
