FORT WORTH — Amtrak celebrated its 500,000th passenger on the Heartland Flyer route from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City Thursday. Marilea Hoffmann, 80, of Oklahoma City received a cake, embroidered blanket and a spa treatment from Hilton Fort Worth.
Hoffmann arrived at Fort Worth’s Intermodal Transportation Center on a routine trip to see daughter Nancee Hoffmann of Keller. She’s been a regular on the train since shortly after service began in ’99.
What does she like best about it? "The scenery between here and there is beautiful."
