On the day before the inauguration of the new Amtrak service to Roanoke, VA a special train carrying Amtrak and Norfolk Southern executives, elected officials and other VIPs was operated from Lynchburg to Roanoke for the grand opening activities. The five-car train was comprised of three Amfleet business cars, one Amfleet café-lounge, and Amtrak car No. 10001, named “Beech Grove”, a business car used to transport Amtrak executives and other senior officials. This is the VIP special arriving at the new Roanoke station at 12:05 PM.
