This picture was taken out an Amtrak train window as it came into the Emporia, Virginia train depot earlier this year.
While exploring a future Amtrak trip – I saw that there is no service to Emporia. Trains travel thru town but do not stop. I’m not sure if my train in 2007 just stopped for some reason ( signal, traffic, mechanical issue etc ). Or if 2007 was last year Amtrak serviced this station.
If I remember correctly I would have been riding coach on Amtrak Silver Star from Tampa Florida to Washington DC.
