PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) - A tourist excursion railroad that operates in partnership with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park has acquired four railcars dating back to the 1940s. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad says it bought the Zephyr railcars for $1.5 million. They include two passenger railcars offering scenic 360-degree views from a dome, a sleeper car and a passenger car. Railroad officials say the cars exemplify the glamour of cross-country travel available on the California Zephyr from the 1940s to the 1960s.
