Amtrak adds Virginia service
Amtrak has added daily round-trip service between Richmond and Boston, giving Baltimore riders expanded options for travel to several stations between Virginia's capital and Washington.
Among the Virginia stations served by the new trains, which began service today, are Alexandria, Woodbridge, Fredericksburg, Quantico, Ashland and Richmond's Staples Mills. The service is the second launched by an Amtrak-Virginia partnership that introduced service too Lynchburg last fall.
The line will operate on tracks owned by CSX Transportation but to which the partnership contributed the infrastructure needed to launch the service. A schedule is available here.
