The Washington Post, 3/17:
Plans for VRE expansion to Haymarket crumble
The Virginia Railways Express operations board voted Friday to scrap a proposed 11-mile extension of the Manassas line into western Prince William County.
Had things gone according to plan, a new commuter train station would have been built in Haymarket, giving visitors a way to get to the small town 40 miles west of the nation’s capital and providing residents an alternative to driving to jobs in Washington.
Instead, the board approved a recommendation to relocate and expand the current Broad Run station, an alternative officials say is more feasible in the current economic climate. . . .
