Autumn Train Excursion bound for Charlottesville, Va.

SPENCER ó The N.C. Transportation Museum will host two Virginia Autumn Train Excursions bound for Charlottesville, Va., Nov. 1 and Nov. 2.
Presented by The N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation and the Watauga Valley Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, the excursions offer rare daylight trips through the rolling hills of the Carolinas and the Western part of Central Virginia, using Amtrak and vintage rail equipment.
The train departs at 7 a.m. from the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer and arrives at 8 a.m. at the newly restored Greensboro Amtrak Station at 236 East Washington St. Passengers can board at either location before traveling a railroad line that crests the legendary White Oak Mountain, past the Dan, Roanoke, and James Rivers, arriving in Charlottesville, Va., at noon.
Home of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville is full of history, and a short walk to the historic downtown mall offers unique shopping and dining opportunities. The train will depart Charlottesville at 2:45 p.m., returning to Greensboro at 6:30 p.m. and Spencer at 8 p.m.
