Due to exceptionally heavy advance bookings which resulted in sold out
conditions, Amtrak will be adding an additional sleeping car to the
inaugural trip of the TEXAS EAGLE - California Service, leaving Chicago on
Friday evening February 6.  The original sleeping car inventory sold out
over a month prior to departure.

It is expected that this additional sleeper will also sell out quickly and
those desiring to travel on all or part of the Eagle inaugural should make
reservations promptly.  This additional car should appear in the train
inventory (and be available for reservations) within the next 24 hours.  

Various members of Amtrak's intercity management have expressed interest in
participating in this event.  Elected officials along the route will also
participate, either by riding or at trackside ceremonies.  Inaugural
festivities for those on board the train will include musicians and other

The operation of this train southbound through Arkansas and Texas on
Saturday February 7, and the operation of the regular Texas Eagle
northbound on Sunday February 8, offers an excellent opportunity for a
unique weekend train ride to Dallas or other points.
