Marc Magliari an Amtrak spokesman in Chicago We entertain ideas around the country This is an idea and a concept We have to resolve the Texas Eagle Question which we are in the course of working Talcott said Amtrak was interested in the idea because one of the companys Texas Eagle trains sits idle in San Antonio from Friday evening to Sunday morning each weekend While Amtrak officials have told local leaders the plan would be a better use for the unused train the plan could expand the portfolio of this towns tourism attractions And the appeal would be remarkable proponents said Spouses of convention attendees in San Antonio would find a more alluring day activity than watching TV all day in a hotel while their attended meetings The train would drop off passengers in downtown New Braunfels where novelty shops museums and historic attractions would fill their fourhour stay The train would return them to San Antonio by 6 with plenty of time still to visit the Alamo Citys

Talcott said Proponents said they would have to wait for Amtrak to study the plan further and meet with Union Pacific Railroad officials who own the track They also said if the proposal went as planned the route could be offered by spring and its success would hinge on how well the community and Amtrak marketed the service Talcott said Amtrak expected to meet again with local officials in several weeks to discuss the viability of the idea Members of the historic railroad society said they were supportive of the plan and added that the improvements to their facility they plan to begin in October would add to its success The society received about in federal funds to upgrade the train depot that was built in 1907 by Railroad Members said construction would include a new fence brick paving bollards and handicap accessible restrooms Bollards were used to secure a riders horse during the early western days This latest thing is icing on the said Jim Burns the groups president Well have a really nice depot for the train to stop at and not just be a One of the benefits of the plan is that Amtrak could put New Braunfels on its map of service destinations a factor that has drawn support from the Downtown Association and city officials If passengers get off the train theyll have to walk by said Pete Stocking an insurance agent and vice president of the Downtown Association who met with Amtrak officials this past week Then theyll go down Seguin Avenue and then theyll wander over to Treetops restaurant and look off of the bridge Theyll tell their friends about this train
