Dome Car Excursions Set From Roanoke

Private dome cars excursions will be offered Nov. 11-13 on the soon-to-be extended Amtrak Northeast Regional service to Roanoke, Virginia.

The excursions are being hosted by the Virginia Museum of Transportation to raise money for maintenance expenses of Norfolk & Western steam locomotive No. 611. The steamer will not be involved in any of the excursions.

The trips will operate Nov. 11-13 between Roanoke and Washington.

Tickets, which go on sale today, will be sold as one-way tickets, allowing riders to choose which days they travel in each direction.

“This allows guests to choose what kind of trip works best for their travel,” the museum said on its website. “You may want to ride to Roanoke Friday evening and return Saturday, Sunday, or even Monday. Another option would be to rent a car on your return and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway.”

Tickets are $225 per person and include complimentary breakfast, lunch, and beverages. Each one-way trip lasts approximately five hours.
