COPY-Ridge Runner Last Ride and Festival

BLUEFIELD (WVVA)- On Sunday, Bluefield City Park held their last Ridge Runner Train Ride a long with a festival to celebrate the season.

Families came from all over the area so that parents could share their memories of the community train with their children. 

Darren Cook says he has fond memories of riding it with his father before he passed. "I road the ridge runner when it was on top of east river mountain and then when I was in college I had the opportunity one summer to drive the train here in the park."

This year the train had almost thirteen thousand passengers.
