Rail Yard Dawgs LogoThe first puck won’t drop until October but the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs are already on track to sell 611 season tickets by Jan. 16, meeting their initial goal. The new professional hockey team is expected to surpass its goal following the Guns ‘n Hoses charity hockey game, to be played at the Berglund Center on Jan. 16. The goal of 611 season tickets was announced when the team name and logo were unveiled – a number honoring the refurbished locomotive at the Virginia Museum of Transportation.
