Visitors this summer to Scovill Zoo will be able to experience an extended train ride.
Ken Frye, Scovill Zoo director, indicates the Zoo is building a 500-foot long extension to the train that will go to the Children's Museum and along the lakefront.
Frye says much of the bill was footed by the Howard Buffet Foundation and the Decatur Park District. He notes people will be able to get on and off the train at either the zoo or the Children's Museum.
The majority of the train conductors are volunteers.
