Vintage railcars make stop in Spokane

Vintage railroad cars on display in Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. – Twenty vintage railroad cars have made a stop in Spokane. The rail cars date back to before the 1920s. The cars are located at the BNSF Erie Street Yard as part of a convention being held in Spokane for the first time.

Organizers with the American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners said there are only about 200 of these cars left in the United States and Canada that have been preserved and are still touring the country. They said the cars have carried many presidents -- including President Obama.

For more information about the convention, visit the AAPRCO website.

Editor note: An earlier version of this article said the public would have the chance to look at the historic train. That was incorrect. The train is on private property.
