It's a no-go for a train station in Bedford.

According to the Bedford town manager, they received word from Richmond this week.

He said there were major concerns over ridership. The cost of track improvements at the station and platform were also a big concern.

Town leaders were hoping for an Amtrak station between Roanoke and Lynchburg.

Bedford had a passenger train station up until 1971.

Town leaders say they will continue to fight for a stop in Bedford.
