Amtrak to Add Second Train to Norfolk

Amtrak is planning to add a second Northeast Regional train to Norfolk, Virginia, starting March 4.

An Amtrak spokeswoman said the schedule for the train has yet to be completed, but a news release from the City of Norfolk indicated it will be a mid-morning departure.

Amtrak returned to Norfolk in December 2012. Previously, the city had been served by the Chicago-Norfolk Mountaineer between 1975 and 1977.

The current Northeast Regional train departs Norfolk at 6:10 a.m. on weekdays and five minutes later on weekends.

The train returns to Norfolk at 8:38 p.m. on weekdays and two minutes earlier on Sundays. The Saturday train arrives at 11:36 p.m.

The service is funded in part by the state of Virginia.
