There's a new addition in Sarpy County that retains some local history.
And it weighs nearly 30 tons.
A Union Pacific Railroad caboose was moved to its new home, the Sarpy County Museum in Bellevue.
The museum bought it for $18 from Springfield.
This caboose was built in 1967.
Museum Director Ben Justman said the railroad played an important role in Sarpy County's history.
"You had one community that lifted all its buildings up to go to the tracks when the tracks didn't come to them, you had some communities that became ghost towns because the railroad decided not to build there,' he said. "Bellevue at one point almost had the transcontinental railroad...it went to a little town to the north, you might have heard of it...today its Omaha."
The plan is to restore the caboose both inside and out.
A section of the museum relating to railroads would then be housed inside the caboose.
