Look, up in the sky! Nope, it isn't a bird or a plane -- it's a TRAIN! This afternoon, two 70-year old flat-bed freight cars flew over Santa Ana Street and landed on the special tracks set up outside Anaheim's landmark Packing House.
The wheels were rolled onto the track first... followed shortly by the two enormous iron platforms, each one weighing 55 thousand pounds. It took some fancy kite-flying techniques to guide the heavy structures over to the exact right spot.
As the thick cables were removed, the two retired freight cars settled into their new home, where they will remain for a long, long time.
The two 1940s train cars will serve as a provocative building-length dining porch, as well as helping to keep some of Anaheim's citrus history alive.
