I rode the Texas Eagle from STL to CHI on the first leg of a trip to Washington, DC last fall. The consist we had was as follows: P42DC #76, Transition sleeper, Superliner Sleeper, Superliner Diner, Superliner Lounge, and three Superliner coaches. We left STL only 45 minutes behind schedule, and arrived in CHI only 30 minutes late. Ride was very enjoyable!! On the return trip the consist was similar, only with P42DC #71 providing the motive power.
