The most recent national timetable that I have shows that this train does have a baggage car with onboard bicycle racks for passengers to use. Why is checked baggage not then permitted, particularly between Fort Worth and Oklahoma City?
If I attempted to have a small piece of luggage put in the baggage car, would that be possible/allowed?
In the Coaches, what kind of storage for baggage is available? And, how much is available other than over the seat rack type?
Would Texas Eagle (#21) be considered by Amtrak as a guaranteed connection with #822 at Fort Worth?
Would #821 be considered by Amtrak as a guaranteed connecting with Texas Eagle #22 at Fort Worth?
If a guaranteed connection is not possible, would it be wise to plan for an overnight in Fort Worth going in either direction from/to Chicago and Oklahoma City?
I'm considering a rail trip to an area of the country that I have not visited and on trains that I have not traveled. Information for all is appreciated. Many thanks!
