Overnight northeast regionals
Author: Klaceddreams

Amtrak's booking shows the overnight regionals cancled until april but i haven't seen any service advisories other than the one saying they were canceled until jan 7th for a winter storm.  Anyone know what's going on with them?

Lets be clear though - we are talking about the Boston to Newport News Train that's cancelled - #65/66/67. ONE round trip of Amtrak Regional.

Amtrak says its through March 27th.
It sure leaves a hole in schedule south of Wash DC.    It is the first train south to Richmond in the morning and its return in the afternoon is ideal.

Guess could just make the state pay for this schedulel !!!!

After the Autotrain and Crescent fiascos, they seem paranoid about running trains through Virginia, and even went after a PRIIA train. Maybe also giving the middle finger to the 2 Virginia Senators calling for investigations. I think Saturday night runs were probably the weakest. I could see cutting it to 6 days per week, but not killing it.
