The Adrian and Blissfield Rail Road is marking its 25th anniversary under the same ownership this weekend. The A & B and The Old Road Dinner Train are the latest in the 180-year history train history along the stretch of track between Riga and Adrian. The short-line rail company operates both freight trains on the short rail 20-mile track between Riga and Adrian as well as four other Michigan railroads in southern Michigan.
To celebrate the occasion there will be an anniversary party of sorts from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday. A ribbon cutting ceremony with some of the village dignitaries and others takes place at 9:30 a.m. There will be train rides starting at 10:30 a.m. for $3 per person.
