Fancy Train Car: The Marcia

Folks can take a free tour of an old Pullman luxury train car that was custom built in 1906 for David Moffat, a financier and industrialist from Denver. Our guide, Rebecca, told us that Moffat was largely credited with bringing the railroad to Craig, which had a big economic impact on the area. While in town, check out the elk scene -- the area has one of the largest elk herds in the world.

The equivalent of today's private jet -- but more sumptuous -- The Marcia was moved to its current spot as a tourist attraction in July 1953.
