Can you hear the sound of a whistle? That’s the Amtrak Exhibit Train coming to the Virginia Transportation Museum on Saturday, October 18 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and Sunday, October 19 from 1 pm – 5pm.
Climb aboard, take a free, self-guided tour to learn about Amtrak’s history, and catch a glimpse into the company’s future.
