When the train departs Richmond for Charleston, SC, would that be via the CSX A-Line on March 3rd? I'd like to see it thru Rocky Mount, if possible.

They might take NS on that run, too, just like today -- since they'll be spotted up on NS in Richmond: RBBB dislikes having to pay $100 per car for interchange rates between carriers.
