Name: "Next Stop Bedford" Rail Rally
Date: November 9, 2017
Time: 6:30 AM - 7:30 AM EST
Event Description:
With the launch of Amtrak service to and from Roanoke on October 31, local government officials, business leaders and residents are coming together at a rally to urge VDOT to locate the next  passenger rail station in Downtown Bedford. Members of the public are invited to attend. Rally participants are encouraged to bring home-made signs supporting Bedford Amtrak and bring empty suitcases, if possible. 

Since the train passes at 6:55 am, this is an early morning adventure! If you believe having a station in Bedford will be beneficial, please join us.

Local government officials will give brief remarks after the train passes.  We will invite media to cover this display of support for a Bedford Amtrak station.

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
The Rally takes place in Downtown Bedford near the train tracks at the proposed site of the Bedford Rail Station. Parking is available in the gravel overflow parking lot for the Courthouse on Plunkett St. (Directions: From Main St., turn down Court St. to the bottom of the hill. Park in the lots on your right or left.)
