The Piedmont, originating from Raleigh, and the Carolinian, originating from Charlotte, will be making their once-a-year stops in Lexington for the 37th Annual Barbecue Festival.
The City of Lexington's newly renovated Southern Railway Freight Depot will house a special hospitality area dedicated to the comfort and convenience of the passengers riding trains to and from the festival.
The festival will also provide the hospitality area with live entertainment for passengers waiting for the evening trains. The hospitality area is hosted by the Lexington Passenger Rail Committee.
We'll be rolling out the "red carpet" when your train arrives!
