STRASBURG (AP) -- A 95-year-old train car that once hauled railroad tycoons in luxury is rolling again.

Reading Car 10 hadn't moved for decades at its home in Strasburg, Lancaster County.

The Strasburg Rail Road has completed a $150,000 renovation of what's also called the President's Car. Its plush furnishings include ornate woodwork and elegant staterooms.

The car was built in 1913 for Philadelphia & Reading Railroad President George Baer. It's believed to have carried President Truman on part of his 1948 whistle stop tour.

It holds up to 18 people and will be coupled to regularly scheduled Strasburg trains several times daily through Labor Day.

The Strasburg Rail Road is a 4ˆ½-mile railroad that runs excursion trains powered by steam locomotives.
