Gopher State Railway puts new display building into place

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

Gopher State Railway Museum is starting small with its plans for a railroad museum two miles north of New Prague... That is, if you consider a project that involves moving a building to be small.

Chuck Tuma, vice-president of the non-profit organization, explained that Steve Meger of Meger Moving moved the building from the south end of the museum's 20 acres along Highway 21 to the northeast corner of its property.

Meger and son Scott jacked the building up onto wheels on Saturday, July 11, and moved it the next day.
