Owner Postpones Move of Zephyr Dinner Train
The move of the Minnesota Zephyr Dinner Train in Stillwater, has been postponed.
According to the City of Stillwater, the train's owner was planning move the Minnesota Zephyr Dinner Train off the tracks at the old Stillwater Depot around 3 a.m. Wednesday.
Community Development Director Bill Turnblad tells KSTP.com there was apparently a miscommunication between the owner of the train and moving consultants on permits for a storage spot.
Two train cars were loaded for a test run, but that's as far as they got.
At this point, it's unclear when the train will be moved.
The train stopped running in 2008 after its owners could not afford to keep it running.
The nearly six mile train corridor was sold to the Department of Natural Resources last year for $4.25 million. The corridor will become a bike trail.
