Woodbridge station is a train station in Woodbridge, Virginia. It serves Amtrak's Northeast Regional line and Virginia Railway Express's Fredericksburg Line. Woodbridge's Rippon station is also served by VRE. Woodbridge station is located at 1040 Express Way, on the opposite side of the tracks of the Jefferson Davis Highway (U.S. 1).

History[edit]

The Woodbridge station was originally built in 1992. It is located near the site of a former Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad station known as "Occoquan Station," until 1951 when it was renamed "Woodbridge Station." The Carolinian stopped here between 1995 and 1999.[2]

A second platform on the western side of the tracks was completed prior to the planned Summer 2010 initiation of express service to Washington. Access from northbound US 1 to the platform and elevator on the western side was included in the project.[3]
