The Ohio River Sternwheel Festival wasn't the only major event taking place in Marietta Sunday afternoon.

People headed to the west end of the city for the third annual Harmar Railroad Days.

Train lovers got to ride on the Southern Railway Crescent Limited down Maple Street.

They also got to learn a thing or two about the historic railroads and locomotives.

"A lot of people has never seen a steam locomotive, many have never ridden on them. Those that have, really enjoy it and our reward is the smiley faces, I love dealing with the kids," says Joe Holbrook.

The Southern Railway Crescent Limited Train is a pacific class engine.

Another locomotive, the Heavenly Hilltop Railroad also made an appearance in the Harmar Village.
