The project is divided into phases.
Plans for, Phase IA, currently under construction, include two layover and servicing tracks of 1,300 and 1,000 feet as well as a 600-foot-long service platform, a 475-foot-long track for spare equipment and a 6,200-square-foot building for maintenance personnel and Amtrak crews.
Phase 1A also includes track work to be performed by Norfolk Southern to allow passenger trains to access the facility from the Norfolk Southern mainline.
Additional phases are planned although they are not currently funded:
- Phase 1B will include a 40,000-square-foot shop building and additional yard tracks.
- Phase 2 will include a building expansion to accommodate longer, high-speed trains.
