Suffolk is located in the southeast corner of Virginia.  No fewer than five different railroads passed within one mile of each other (N&W, VGN, A&D, SAL, and ACL) in days gone by.  Today, there are two Class Is (NS and CSX) and one shortline (Commonwealth - CWRY).


Intermodal trains from CSX and NS come to Suffolk and enter the Commonwealth Railway on their way to APM Terminals in Portsmouth.  Other intermodals terminate and originate at Virginia International Terminals in Norfolk.  Coal, grain, and merchandise trains are also common trains on both CSX and Norfolk Southern.


A new Amtrak Regional train to Norfolk begins revenue service on Decmeber 12, 2012.
