TREGO, Wis. — The opportunity may be coming to travel to Northwest Wisconsin and ride one of the first diesel-powered streamlined passenger trains.

In a Trains News Wire exclusive, the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad has announced it has purchased the Mark Twain Zephyr, one of nine trainsets built by Philadelphia’s Budd Co. for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy in 1934.

The shovelnose locomotive and three-car articulated trainset, along with an extra car, are in the process of being trucked to WGN’s Trego yards where the train will undergo a full restoration to operating condition.
