This Saturday and Sunday, join Amtrak as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary as America's Railroad. The Amtrak Exhibit Train will be making a stop in the "City of Cowboys and Culture" and is free and open to the public to explore 10:00 am-4:00 pm Jan. 7 and 8.
Since 1971, Amtrak has been America’s provider for intercity passenger rail services. With more than 500 destinations, in 46 states and Canada, Amtrak connects lives all over North America. The name "Amtrak" comes from the blending of two words "America" and "track." The 40th Anniversary of Amtrak is sure to be a celebration of both the history of America and how it has evolved throughout the years.
The Amtrak station in Fort Worth is part of a modern facility constructed of brick and trimmed in regional stone. Located near Sundance Square and the Botanical and Water Gardens, the station’s 70-foot high, four-faced clock tower presents a striking landmark in downtown Fort Worth. Opened in 2002, the station also accommodates the Trinity Railway Express commuter rail service that provides connections to our neighbor to the east, Dallas. Intercity and local buses make the station a truly intermodal center.
