New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 25, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas J?. <2? 2A □ Herald-Zeitung □ Friday, July 25,1997_ Amtrak From Page 1 5 'million loan that will continue the system until Sept. 30, which is the end of the company’s fiscal year. If no more funding comes through, the ' Eagle could be grounded along with die plan, officials said. “We are exploring an intriguing . concept regarding service to your . area,” said Marc Magliari, an Amtrak spokesman in Chicago. “We entertain ideas around the country, i’ This is an idea and a concept. We . .have to resolve (the Texas Eagle) question, which we are in the course of working out.” ° ‘ Talcott said Amtrak was interested Sin the idea because one of the company’s 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 town’s 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 ' ‘spouses attended meetings. The train would drop off passengers in downtown New Braunfels where novelty shops, museums and historic attractions would fill their four-hour stay. The train would return them to San Antonio by 6 p.m. with plenty of *time still to visit the Alamo City’s -Rjverwalk or other night attractions there, proponents said. *, “I think this is a different kind of ‘.opportunity that New Braunfels has ♦never had before,” said Talcott, who ‘stressed the plan was preliminary, rit’s an opportunity to bring in ^people on a yearly basis and not ^because of water-related activities.” j The ride could be a package deal ;that would include lunch at a Idowntown restaurant and a barbecue Police Beat dinner meal on the way back, 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 $50,000 in federal funds to upgrade the train depot that was built in 1907 by l&GN Railroad. Members said construction would include a new fence, brick paving, bollards and handicap accessible restrooms. Bollards were used to secure a rider’s horse during the early western days. “This latest thing is icing on the cake,” said Jim Bums, the group’s president. “We’ll have a really nice depot for the train to stop at and not just be a museum.” 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, they’ll have to walk by everybody,” said Pete Stocking, an insurance agent and vice president of the Downtown Association who met with Amtrak officials this past week. “Then they’ll go down Seguin (Avenue) and then they’ll wander over to Treetops (restaurant) and look off of the bridge. They’ll tell their friends about this train thing ” Obituaries Elsie Bertha George Elsie Bertha George of New Braunfels, died Thursday, July 24, 1997, at the age of 99.
