East Falls Church in Arlington County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
East Falls Church Station
The United States' involvement in World War II greatly increased the local workforce at the same time that gas rationing curtailed private automobile use. Complaints from local citizens - and orders from the federal government - brought service back in 1943. Eight years later the W&OD made its last passenger run.
Erected by The Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park - Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority.
