This is a link to a piece I noticed on a local neighborhood FB page. It's about doing something about the overcrowded CVS Amtrak station. It seems to acknowledge that Amtrak or VDOT is foot-dragging about the additional NER because of the station. That doesn't make much sense to me - after all a new train would come at a new time when the station is presently empty!
What makes the most sense is to evict the restaurant and occupy the entirety of the original station - maybe the all-knowing architectural review board will see this. I imagine the current owner of the property (also a developer) doesn't want this for some reason. The entire property along with the parking lot has been on the market for several years.
