San Antonio to Fort Worth

Cons: The trip from San Antonio to Forth Worth was nice and in time. But I just received an email about my return trip informing me that the trip was canceled due to some malfunction. They say I need to get other es s to get back. I don’t understand if I did not cancel my tickets, it was the Amtrak who canceled because of some problem, why do I not get reimburse for the return ticket. I am disappointed that this happened and Amtrack just canceled the trip. Tips: Train it’s very comfortable, but apparently not too reliable.
