An Amtrak Adventure

This upcoming week is Reese’s spring break, so to control costs, I’m taking the train up to Bloomington and then renting a car to drive us to Chicago. I went in to work a half day with Heather, grabbed some lunch, then hopped on the TRE to head for the Fort Worth station. That’s where the fun started. There is some construction on the tracks between San Antonio and Fort Worth, so we got bussed to Longview. When we got there it was pouring rain, but we all wanted to be off the bus, so we collected our baggage and hopped on. It pulled out a few minutes later, though a little behind schedule. I snagged a quick dinner from the cafe and settled in with a book. We’ll be in Bloomington some time tomorrow, around lunchtime if we get back on schedule.
