Restored 1903 Executive Train Car

The Oregon Short Line rail car was built in 1903 as an executive car for the VP of the Union Pacific Railroad. Its original cost to build was $16,685. The car was retired in 1935, and was used as a summer home in West Yellowstone for many years after that. Restored in 1995, it was moved to its current location, and a Holiday Inn was built around it.
