Amtrak's experiment at running a passenger train on the N&W through Virginia was relatively short lived. On Feb. 28, 1977, westbound No. 55, the "Mountaineer," was passing through Nottoway Court House with P30CH No. 711 and two cars.
i was born in virginia in 1972. when i think of railroads that shaped the commonwealth. i think of railroads like, SCL, N&W and southern. this is a tribute to those wonderful days gone by and for those who remember it well.
