The city will begin major improvements to the downtown park next week, beginning with the renovation and restoration of Southern Pacific Engine 2355, which has been in Mesa for almost 60 years.

The first task at hand is removing asbestos and lead paint from the train, followed by other cosmetic renovations and some structural repairs. The final product will include an elevated walkway that allows park-goers to access the train's cab, which will include interactive buttons and other features, according to Save Our Train Committee Chairman Jim Ruiz.
