Antique train car taking a trip from Milton to Munson

MILTON, Fla. An antique train car will be making another journey, but it won't be following any tracks.

The West Florida Railroad Museum in Milton is moving one of its old dining cars, to the campground at Adventures Unlimited.
Train experts spent the day prepping the 90-year-old rail car for a road trip to Munson.

George Wilson, West Florida Railroad Museum
"We're not able to maintain it and do some of the things that we'd hoped to be able to do with it, so, uh, they're going to take it and preserve it on their property and use it for cabins for tourists."

They expect to move the wheel and axle units tomorrow afternoon, and the car itself on Thursday.
The car weighs 82-tons, so the truck hauling it will only be able to go about 25 miles per hour.
