The Amtrak station at 800 N. Washington St. in Marshall is in the process of hiring a new staff, according to the railroad.

A statement from Amtrak said the previously unmanned station is looking into hiring a new staff to aid in booking trips and the boarding of Texas Eagle trains.

The company said it plans to soon have representatives for every Amtrak arrival and departure, which was cut from daily to about three times a week.

The station waiting room is open for passengers at all train times with a kiosk available for ticketing and printing of boarding documents.
