The Passenger Station

The Roanoke station was built in 1909-1910 as a showpiece of the Virginian Railway in Roanoke. The design was unique to the Virginian and served the railroad’s passenger service until the last run on January 29, 1956. The station was used as offices until a merger with the Norfolk and Western on December 1, 1959. It was leased out to a private concern until the evening of January 29, 2001, 45 years to the day of the last passenger service on the Virginian. A fire destroyed the building that night, but it would rise like a Phoenix from the ashes with restoration completed in 2016. The station served as the most visible part of the Virginian in Roanoke during the days of passenger service and has been restored to its former grandeur with faithful effort from many people.

Today we simply call it The Train Station and look forward to having passengers back into the station as an Event Venue. Truly the best of Roanoke, we have Trains, Mill Mountain and the Roanoke Star. All in our back yard!

We look forward to serving you once again! All Aboard!!!
