I’m also amazed at the long commute times that some people endure, but I don’t believe that rail would increase the number of people who commute from DC to Charlottesville.  There may be a few two-home households where a spouse works in both cities, or their company has offices in both localities, but I doubt if rail would suddenly increase the pool of professional workers in Charlottesville.  Put simply, DC is more expensive to live (but not by as much as most would think) and wages are lower down here. It is a charming place to live with limited professional opportunities, so I suspect rail would permit more people to live here who need to do business in Washington a couple of times a week.

The movie Virginia was shot at Monticola, then the Nolting’s summer home in Howardsville. When contacted by the movie’s producer, the Noltings had the house refurbished, much to the producer dismay as they wanted it look ‘rundown’ The western cottage which was struck by lighting and burnt to the ground in the late 80’s was used as a clinic by Dr. Margaret Nolting and Elisabeth Iving of Selma in Buckingham County was her nurse.
