DENVER (AP) — A company that operates lodges and restaurants in national parks has bought 25 passenger cars that belonged to a defunct luxury train operator.
Xanterra Parks & Resorts said it is buying the cars of GrandLuxe Rail Journeys, which stopped operating last year.

Xanterra President and CEO Andy Todd said the company plans to use the cars "to enhance the national parks experience" at several Western parks but doesn't have specifics yet.

Xanterra has properties in Death Valley National Park, Calif., Grand Canyon National Park, Ariz., Yellowstone National Park, Wyo., Mount Rushmore National Memorial, S.D., Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks, Utah, and Crater Lake National Park, Ore., and in eight Ohio state parks.
