Amtrak's Staples Mill station gets a glow-up, sort of
Amtrak's Staples Mill station has a whole new look.
What's happening: Amtrak just completed its two-month long renovation of the Henrico train station that brought in new, more comfortable seating, updated bathrooms and a refresh of the walls and floor, a spokesperson for Amtrak tells Axios.
Why it matters: Staples Mill is the busiest station in Virginia, per Amtrak, but the interior hadn't been updated since it opened in 1975 and still had a very Brady, 1970s vibe.
Flashback: The nearly-50-year-old station got parking lot enhancements in 2018 that more than doubled the capacity and added bike racks and ride-share/taxi parking.
