Pros: Nothing. Cons: They have a lot of work to do. I have no idea what it was like pre covid? I would Like to think it was way better then it was on 5/28/21. Anything had to be better then 5/28/21. I guess there’s nowhere to go up here, because the Texas Eagle/Amtrak sucked! Tips: Let me share my story...Upon boarding Traiin 422 from Taylor to Fort Worth which was 1 1/2 hours late, my son & I were the only riders sent up to the 2nd level. There were multiple single riders spread across 2 seats in at least 2 of the upper level cars. We finally found 1 empty row with seats available (there was NOTHING on the seats reserving or notifying it was for employees only).Once settled in & as the train had been moving for at least 5 minutes, Art G, (an Amtrak employee/attendant) approached us and very aggressively told us we were in HIS SEATS, and we HAD TO MOVE! Then he walked us pass the multiple single riders sprawled across 2 seats, found 2 very older ladies who were sitting alone, and separated my son and I because he was unwilling to ask ANY OTHER single riders to share seats so we could sit together?When I asked him why he couldnt do that, he said I could talk to the conductor because the train was full.IT was NOT FULL since all those people who paid for 1 SEAT could get an EXTRA SEAT FOR FREE.It was obvious that Art had no problem separating us, then helping 2 customers find away to sit together who ACTUALLY PAID FOR 2 SEATS.How does that make sense? It does not at all! Art was extremely rude! He literally has one job, to attend to riders on the train, and he couldn’t even do that responsibly and with kindness. After speaking to the lovely ladies next to us we found out those upper level cars were riders going from LA to Chicago, and that’s why most of them were Spread out. However, it seems that whenever a small commute rider or 2 Was sent to the top, Art G would put them with the older ladies cuz he knew they wouldn’t complain. And they didn’t! So he kept doing it! All Art had to do was tell us that, and help us find something down on the lower level, or god forbid give up his 2 seats for an hour to us. I promise this review would have been put together much differently, and I wouldn’t have posted this one all over the internet. Were not from Texas.Definitely didnt feel like a welcomed rider/customer at all any time in this process & will never take the Amtrak train in Texas again. Wasnt worth the $82 at all!!! You all need to work on your customer service, especially ART G! Its is terrible!

Pros: It was convenient for my destination. Cons: I wax a first time train traveler in the US and there was little to no explanation of what I was suppose to be doing. A little cleaner train would have been nice. Bathroom was discussing. I’ve traveled trains in many other countries and I’ll say this trip did not hold up to the standards of other countries.

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.
