Spotsylvania County VRE station to open soon

VRE Train Talk eNews We know there are many out there eagerly anticipating the opening of the Spotsylvania Station on the Fredericksburg Line. Thanks to all the hard work by Spotsylvania County, VDOT and VRE’s staff and contractors (and the patience of our riders), we are happy to announce that the Spotsylvania Station will open on November 16, 2015 with the first train leaving at 4:57 a.m. All trains will operate the existing schedule of service. The only change we are making is a Spotsylvania stop eight minutes before the Fredericksburg Station. See below for the Fredericksburg Line schedule with Spotsylvania added. The general public is invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 16th at 10 a.m. Local, State and Federal elected officials will be in attendance to help celebrate the station opening. We will not begin the new train and the related new schedule on November 16th. There are some scheduling coordination work we need to complete with our host railroads, but we will begin the new train and new schedule before the end of the year. Don't worry, when we are ready to announce the date for the new train and schedule, we will do so via the normal communication channels, Train Talk, our website, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Fredericksburg Line Schedule with Spotsylvani
