Social center of the Texas Eagle, open to all passengers
Social center of the Texas Eagle, Amtrak's Sightseer Lounge car features swivel seats, wraparound windows, beverage and snack service, and onboard movies most evenings.

Whether you're riding in coach or a sleeper, you're invited to spend a portion of your trip in the Sightseer Lounge Car.

The upper level features comfortable, casual seating (see the chart below) and wraparound windows for an incomparable view of the scenery by day and the stars by night.

Listen for the announcement of hospitality hour, with complimentary snacks and specialty drinks.

Catch a recent theatrical or classic Western movie every evening on one of several video monitors.

Texas Eagle lounge attendants frequently hold other special events during the day as well: cartoons in the summer, trivia contests and more. Listen for the announcements.
