[Talk-us] USA Rail: Amtrak Northeast Regional to Norfolk?

Does anybody know how the newer Northeast Regional Amtrak trains (71,
88, 125, 157, 174) which serve Norfolk, Virginia actually get there?
I mean on what track from Petersburg?
I ask as OSM's Amtrak routes become roughly complete with this
missing segment (there are a few other minor missing segments around
Chicago), at least to a rudimentary state of
public_transport:version=1. Work has begun to convert these to
public_transport:version=2, a major goal of USA Rail going forward.
Another major goal is the completion of infrastructure (route=railway
relations and associated tagging), which lags far behind Amtrak
routes but still progresses nicely.
Amtrak status is at http://wiki.osm.org/wiki/Amtrak . Infrastructure
status is ad hoc, noted for California at
http://wiki.osm.org/wiki/California/Railroads but otherwise rather
haphazardly documented (and completed).
Thanks in advance if you can route Amtrak to Norfolk or Union Station
