The National Weather Service has issue a Tropical Storm Warning for our area in advance of Hurricane Irene. With that in mind, we wanted to share some of our storm information with you. Unfortunately, there is not much to tell. Simply put, we are in “watch and wait” mode.
However, we are keeping in constant contact with our host railroads: CSX, Norfolk Southern, and Amtrak. We are securing our yards and are making arrangements to ensure that our fleet is fueled and ready to go on Monday morning.
As you know, the safety of our passengers both on our trains and platforms is important to us. Your safety at home is important too. Please be sure to secure or bring in all loose items from your yards, porches, patios, etc. Make sure you have plenty of batteries and a portable radio.
VRE will update everyone, via Train Talk, the website, our 800-RIDE-VRE (743-3873) number, and the media by 6:00pm on Sunday night.
