Amtrak service to Roanoke, VA was reintroduced this Halloween after almost four decades since the last Amtrak train departed Roanoke in 1979. After years of studies and planning, and obtaining funding, the new service is finally a reality, providing a new travel option between Roanoke and Lynchburg, VA and points north all the way to Boston in the same seat and with one ticket. The new service is actually an extension of an existing train which was inaugurated between Boston and Lynchburg, VA in October 2009, Northeast Regional trains Nos. 171 and 176. The 53-mile extension to Roanoke runs west from Lynchburg over Norfolk Southern’s former Norfolk and Western Railway’s Blue Ridge District. The new daily service was officially commemorated the previous day during a ceremony held at the new Roanoke Amtrak station, completed just in time. This is the FIRST new Amtrak service train preparing to depart Roanoke on October 31, 2017. The new service got off to a good start, with 151 riders boarding at the new
Roanoke station.
