Train Ride To Remember: BNSF Rolls In Railway Special

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

It was a train ride to remember for 350 kids from Fresno County. 

Burlington Northern Santa Fe rolled in the railway special Wednesday about noon.  Every few years BNSF returns to the Valley to treat kids to a train ride along with treats and a few keepsakes.

Kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fresno County got the red carpet treatment. 

Aileen Salazar from Selma had been on a train before.  

"It was really fun, exciting and there were a lot of new adventures," Salazar said.

BNSF operates in 28 states.  Its mission is to give back to communities where its 'employees work and live.  The company also presented Boys and Girls Clubs of Fresno County with a check for $10,000.
