Amtrak #50, named “Big Game Train” hustles Tr 22, the Texas Eagle past the restored station at Kyle TX. The bindweed is still blooming in the Texas summer. The Big Game is the annual football contest between Texas and Oklahoma. It is one of the great rivalries in college football.

Kyle is where the Balcones Escarpment meets the Blacklands Prairie. The town was established in 1880 when David Moore and Fergus Kyle gave 200 acres for a town site to the international and Great Northern Railroad. The town was last incorporated in1906, after a previous false start in 1895.
