A blast from the past is coming to Radford on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 in the form of a steam locomotive. These mighty engines were once the standard for hauling cargo and passengers through the mountains and across the plains. Come out and witness one of these relics from the early days of mass transit. Passengers will be riding the train up from Abingdon. The train is scheduled to arrive in downtown Radford at the parking lot beside Wells Fargo around noon. While you are there you can also check out Radford’s newest form of public transportation, Radford Transit will be there with buses and give away items. Come join the fun this Saturday.
