More than just lofts check out the urban farms!

There are many new urban farms sprouting up in Petersburg. The big million dollar businesses get all the klout but don't forget the farmers that make Petersburg pretty and fresh!

Nice comments, but what is the route. I live in Tidewater area.

Re: The steam engine train

It's quite possible the 611 excursions are no more because of an Amtrak policy decision:

The Steam Engine Train

The visit of the 611 is sponsored by the VA Museum of Transportation in Roanoke. It is not an annual event; it came on Saturday & Sunday in 2015 and again in 2017. The route is Lynchburg -Petersburg and back each day. Check the VMT website for excursion opportunities. We were told that they would not be coming to Petersburg every year. Unfortunately, the recent issue with Amtrak & CSX may hurt our ability to get it back - we all need to communicate our concerns to CSX.
