Buckingham Branch Signal and Switch Heater Replacement

The $12.6 million combined signal and switch heater projects have updated outdated systems and made it possible for Amtrak service to run at posted speeds between Orange and Gordonsville, VA.  Freight and passenger slow orders on this section of track have been eliminated as a result.  Because of the improved signal technologies, Amtrak speeds through the town of Orange have also been increased.
