Amtrak Train

Amtrak 22, the northbound "Texas Eagle" will be coming through Palestine on a month-long detour. Monday was the first time the train went through Palestine. The train is scheduled to come through Palestine at about 2:30 p.m. each day (Oct. 15-31, Nov. 8-16 and Nov. 21-22) due to track work between Longview and Edgewood. The train, which goes from San Antonio to Chicago, holds an average of 150 to 300 passengers with its sleepers sold out almost every day.
