LONGVIEW, Texas (KETK) – Amtrak's Texas Eagle service has started up again after some rail workers and railway owners came to a deal on Thursday. The service which stops in Longview, Marshall and Mineola twice a day was stopped on Wednesday before a potential strike on Friday. Amtrak Spokesman Marc Magliari expects normal operations to start Friday morning, meaning the Texas Eagle starts in San Antonio and arrives in Longview, Saturday morning. The historic Longview Depot also celebrated $5 million in accessibility upgrades Thursday.
