This project involves constructing a new facility to service state-owned Piedmont trains and state-supported Carolinian trains during layovers in Charlotte. A future phase will accommodate longer, higher-speed trains. The Phase 1A facility will include a connection to the Norfolk Southern Mainline, two service tracks and an access drive, as well as trackside water, electrical and compressed air services. The project also involves construction of an office building for Amtrak crews and maintenance employees.
