Amtrak is a great way to travel- a lot cheaper, efficient. I liked watching the cars next to us and we would pass them :D and I didn't have to drive! I didn't even mind the slight delay because I could get out and stretch my legs in a new town I had never been to and we STILL arrived about 30 minutes ahead of schedule!

Amtrak Texas Eagle Train Guide & FAQs

Do Amtrak Texas Eagle trains have WiFi?

No, unfortunately Amtrak Texas Eagle does not offer WiFi aboard its trains at this time. However, we find that a good book makes the time fly by and streaming services like Netflix allow you download TV shows and movies that you can then watch during your trip. Plan ahead and you will stay entertained during the entire train ride.

Are there power points or USB points on the train?

Yes, there are power points onboard Amtrak Texas Eagle trains. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbour might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power points, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power point USB converter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Amtrak Texas Eagle might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
