Through August this year, there had been 10 people killed statewide in rail incidents.

On a better note, for those interested in VRE's Santa Train, it'll run Dec. 8. No word on ticket sales yet, but commuter rail service plans to make an announcement on that soon.

The Brooke Road VRE lot in Stafford was scheduled to be milled and paved over the weekend; the parking expansion work there should be finished by early December.

VRE commuters got a little dressing down recently for what seems like a case of rail rage. VRE's Chris Henry sent out a digital wrist slap to passengers he said threatened, cursed at and shoved conductors.

On another topic, the public information session on the widening of Fall Hill Avenue and extension of Mary Washington Boulevard that was canceled because of Superstorm Sandy has been rescheduled for Nov. 26 at James Monroe High School in Fredericksburg. The meeting will run from 5 to 8 p.m.
