I've always loved trains. While this is a kiddie park version, it's fun to ride and a cheap activity. I stop by every year or two when I'm in the Bluefield area.

I absolutely love this train. It is such an amazing addition to Bluefield City Park. Everyone had a great time when riding it and most of all making memories to last a lifetime!

This is a cute little train ride around Bluefield City Park. Takes approximately 25 minutes for the trip. Relaxing and slow. My 6 year old really enjoyed it. Very affordable.

Totally refurbished and my kids loved it as much as I did when I was a kid. So inexpensive to ride compared to other trains we have rode. Do it even if you don't have kids!

Ride around the park in a steam train. Kids loved it. The train goes over rivers, through woods and tunnels. Perfect. In spotless condition

After doing the Spring Tour of Homes in Bramwell we came over to the Bluefield City Park to ride the Ridge Runner. I can't imagine more fun for $1.50. The train trip was a lot of fun and takes you on a scenic loop through...More

All ages can ride for a small fee. Only open during the summer months. They do have a great Holiday Light show with a donation of canned food for admission.
