Another Train Derails In Arkansas

After the second train crash near Hope, Arkansas, Amtrak decided to cancel both the eastbound and westbound Texas Eagle train. They were from Fort Worth, Texas and St Louis, Missouri, respectively.

When a certain train route is blocked, Amtrak managers may choose to “freeze” inventory. This means that seats on the train would show up as “sold out” to anyone looking to buy a seat.

Thankfully, the eastbound and westbound Texas Eagle train had not left their stations.
