Here are some pictures I took this past Saturday (March 1) in Ettrick, Virginia. This is offten known as Petersburg, Virginia stop for the Atlantic Coast line (later Amtrak). I took all of the pictures from the Amtrak Petersburg station. And unlike last weekend in Ashland, the weather was beautiful.

Photo 1: The old Atlantic Coast Line station at Petersburg. It is now abandoned in favor of its modern counterpart.

Photo 2: The new ACL (now Amtrak) station. It also has offices and a freight house as well as other facilities (now gone). It severs all of Amtrak's Atlantic Coast Service trains (except Auto-Train).

Photo 4: CSX 5221 with northbound Tropicana train. This is one of the most common trains on this route.

All of the pictures were taken along CSX's former Atlantic Coast Line route.

For those of you who viewed the first post, you may have nitcied that it did not come out the way I hoped. I'll try again here.
