It seems to me that most of the trips probably originate there, and the return trips from Sanford, thus, Lorton is not a destination, just an embarkation point. All that being said, the point about crews and servicing is duly noted.Not many people ride the Auto Train from Florida to take a vacation in the Northeast, going from one tourist amusement park to another. There just are not that many tourist parks to see. Just about all the tourists spots in DC are located within walking distance of a hotel, about how far you would walk in a single amusement park in Florida. Almost the same in New York City near Times Square. And where you can go elsewhere in New York City, like the Statue of Liberty, you can not drive your car to it. You can reach just about everything there is to see in the Northeast using public transit, including DC. In fact, I would highly discourage driving your car in New York City because there are so few parking spaces to park it. You would be better served riding a Silver service train. I believe most of the people riding the Auto Train north are going home after a prolong vacation to Florida with their own family car..
