Autumn Excursion Train to Charlottesville
Before sunrise on November 1st, we boarded a special excursion train in Salisbury, North Carolina, and pulled out of the Spencer Museum Station at 7 a.m. for a five hour trip north to Charlottesville, Virginia. The train had twenty-seven cars, including the two Amtrak locomotives, and over 900 passengers. After a three hour layover for lunch and shopping in the Blue Ridge city, the train returned to Salisbury at 8 p.m. the same day.
