Richmond to Main Street

The Amtrak Staples Mill (Richmond) station has two passenger tracks (3 & 4) on the west side, island and west side platforms with umbrella sheds, and prefabricated depot on the west side, just north of the railroad's Greendale location (GN, MP 4.8 on the RF&P), where there was once a 40 mph speed restriction for northbound trains until the lead locomotive occupied Hermitage Road grade crossing (which appears to have been replaced by an overbridge) and a road bridge overhead.  Between Greendale and AY, all trains are restricted to 25 mph.

South of Dumbarton, the railroad's eight-track and then even wider Acca Yard begins on the east side of the line at North Acca ("Interlocking A"), and Richmond (MP 2.4 on the RF&P), past two road bridges overhead, track 4 ends (track 3 continues to AY), with Bryan Park Shops on the west side of the line, two road bridges overhead, and the yard ends at a signal bridge ("Interlocking B") just north of AY (MP 1.7 on the RF&P, the former location of a tower), where the main former ACL line turns southwest and the former SAL lines into the center of Richmond continue south-southeast, Two Main Tracks, CTC, with an extra track on the east side and a 50 mph speed restriction for all trains, past a south connector trailing in on the west side, Hermitage (MP 3.8N on the former SAL), where the former SAL turns southeast, leaving behind the stub of the former ACL line through Richmond, MP 3.5N, where the speed restriction drops to 30 mph for passenger trains and 25 mph for freights, a turn east, MP 1.8N, where the speed restriction drops to 20 mph for all trains, a turn south with the former location of the ALCO Richmond works on the east side of the line, the yard at Brown Street (MP 0.6N), where there are crossovers with the former C&O line just to the east, MP 0.5N, where the speed restriction drops to 15 mph for the station throat, and the former SAL Main Street station (MP 0.2).
