Amtrak presently operates passenger rail service from Lynchburg's Kemper Street Station. Amtrak's Crescent line, which runs from New Orleans to New York City, stops twice per day at the station. A new line called the Northeast Regional began operation in October 2009; it begins and ends in Lynchburg and connects the city with points up to New York. Please check Amtrak's website for a complete schedule and fare information.
Norfolk Southern owns and operates a number of freight rail lines within
Campbell County; these lines connect with major markets in the
Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest. CSX also operates a rail line that
travels across the northernmost portion of the county that runs from the
Midwest to the Hampton Roads. Campbell County is only a few hours by
rail to port facilities in the Hampton Roads, which are among the
largest and best shipping facilities in the world. For more information please visit the Norfolk Southern website.
