Expanded Passenger Service to Norfolk

Last week, the Richmond Times-Dispatch carried a story by Luz Lazo of the Washington Post. The article starts as follows,

Virginia is adding more Amtrak service between the nation’s capital and eastern and western parts of the state, the latest milestone in Virginia’s multibillion-dollar expansion of its passenger rail network.

New round trips start July 11: one to Norfolk and another to Roanoke, bringing to eight the number of state-funded round trips from Washington. The expansion, state and railroad officials said, addresses growing demand for more intercity train service in the state.

So, there will be more passenger trains passing through town.
