Steam Locomotive Outside Restaurant

There's a nicely painted, old steam locomotive and two rail cars outside of a restaurant. The restaurant grounds are well maintained and the locomotive and rail cars are fenced off. Nice walkways allow you to view them. Walked around and photographed without going inside.

[Lim Poc, 01/24/2021]

The locomotive (built in 1943) and rail cars made more sense when the restaurant was named the Royal Zephyr -- "Zephyr" being the name of a famous train. Then new owners changed the business name to "The Salted Rim," and then in 2020 they moved. The building is now empty, but the trains remain.
