COLORADO SPRINGS -

A locomotive with a rich history spanning more than a century will move out of its home in Colorado Springs Wednesday.

Known as "Old 168" the engine was built in 1883. After being decommissioned it was put on display in Antlers Park in Colorado Springs.

On Wednesday it will be loaded onto a flatbed and taken to Antonito, Colorado. There it will be restored into working condition.

Once restoration is complete it will carry passengers between Antonito and Chama, New Mexico as part of the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad.
