    Heat restrictions on the Fredericksburg Line today from 1pm-7pm.

    Trains begin their trip on time then the heat related delays accumulate over the course of the trip so the farther you go, the longer the delay will be. If your destination is Franconia/Springfield, you will likely not notice the two minute delay. However, if you travel all the way to Spotsylvania, the delay will be approximately fourteen minutes. The train crews will do everything they can to safely make up time along the way to minimize any delays.

    Est. 1992

    Today marks twenty-five years for the “Route of the Red Diamond”, the Fredericksburg line section of the Virginia Railway Express. 

    Much has changed since July 20, 1992; we now average 20,000 daily trips and service several additional stations. Plus, we operate a complete fleet of new cars and new locomotives. 

    Despite the shortfalls, hurdles and opposition faced in the reestablishment of commuter rail to Northern Virginia, VRE has striven to develop a customer friendly and focused reputation all with the overall goal to provide a better commuting life for the workforce of Northern Virginia and beyond!

    Thank you

    We’d like to thank our board members, staff, partners, and, of course, our riders for their extraordinary support.

    Thank you for joining us in our 25th anniversary celebration this year!
