“This latest sale offers customers an opportunity to get away and enjoy a prime view of the changing scenery throughout Virginia,” said Ray Lang, Vice President of State-Supported Services at Amtrak. “With the opportunity to stretch out in a comfortable seat with plenty of leg room, while enjoying a good book as the beautiful Virginia landscape rolls by the window, the journey can truly become the most relaxing part of the adventure.”
