Amtrak Alters, Cancels Service Ahead Of Hermine

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Amtrak says it has cancelled or altered service through parts of Virginia as tropical storm Hermine approaches.

The railroad announced Friday that it has cancelled Saturday’s scheduled Silver Star train from New York to Miami. It also stopped the Auto Train line that runs from Lorton, Virginia, to Sanford, Florida.

The Northeast Regional trains from Newport News to Boston will start and stop in Richmond. Another Northeast Regional train, from New York City to Norfolk, will also end its run in Richmond.

The Palmetto line between New York City and Savannah, Georgia, will only make it as far south as Washington, D.C.

On Sunday, the Northeast Regional that runs between Boston and Norfolk will also stop and start in Richmond.

Riders should check Amtrak’s website or call for up-to-date information.
