The Texas Eagle

The Texas Eagle was originally a train run by the Missouri Pacific and Texas & Pacific Railways from 1948 to 1970 between San Antonio and St. Louis. Amtrak resurrected the name in 1981, with the route ultimately settling on daily Chicago to San Antonio service (1,306 miles) and tri-weekly Chicago to Los Angeles service (2,728) in conjunction with the Sunset Limited service that connects in San Antonio.
