VRE to add route into L'Enfant station
The availability of a new track to park trains on in the District has Virginia Railway Express planning an additional early morning express train from Fredericksburg and weighing other options.
The ability to store a pair of trains at the L'Enfant station between morning and evening rush hours means that two inbound trains will terminate there each morning, instead of continuing to Union Station. Those two most likely will be the Manassas Line 330 and the Fredericksburg Line 304. In the evening, two trains will begin service at L'Enfant, heading to Virginia. The two trains being eyed to start there are the Fredericksburg Line 301 and the Manassas Line 333. Before finalizing the decision, VRE is seeking input from riders.
The new express train will head north at 5:05 a.m., stopping at Leeland Road, Brooke, Alexandria, Crystal City, L'Enfant and Union Station. The rail storage capability will also allow VRE to add one or two additional cars to six trains.
