The BNSF Special Offers Rides to Employees | VideoKristin Clouston | 6/21/2012
The train features 15 restored passenger train cars from the `50s and `60s and is powered by two of the railroad`s newest locomotives.
"They were either from predecessor railroads or acquired over the years and for example there`s a dome car which is always a popular car and you can see out the windows and have a nice view. Other cars have tables, they have seats. We provide snacks and some munchies along the way and everybody has a good ride," said Amy McBeth with BNSF Public Affairs.
BNSF also donated $10,000 to the Missouri Valley YMCA and gave about a hundred campers a ride on the train as well.
