Amtrak Northeast Regional
Thirty-eight years after the last passenger train departed Roanoke, Va., Amtrak has restored service to this historic and culturally significant city of just over 300,000 nestled in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, extending Northeast Regional service south from Lynchburg. This marks the fourth expansion of Amtrak service in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 2009, following new or additional service to Lynchburg, Richmond, and Norfolk.
Amtrak on June 5 began operating non-scheduled, non-revenue trains between Lynchburg and Roanoke, Va., to train and qualify T&E (train and engine service) crews for new, extended Northeast Regional service expected to start in the fall of this year.
