As I've said previously, I hope more people think of the B-line this way. Makes my weekend a great deal easier than it would have been otherwise.

VA 55 is not that bad, and it's considerably straighter than the railroad. You might not be able to get ahead of the train at every single crossing like you could on a regular day of railfanning the line, but chasing is still feasible.

On top of that, you have pretty easy access to I-66 in order to get a jump on the train.
