Today's 100 Objects, Choo Choo McGoo's, is No. 67 because the owner of the iconic family restaurant, Dave Trine, was a police officer in town and his badge number was 67. Choo Choo McGoo's is known for its great food, fun atmosphere and the popular train outside the business on Markland Avenue in Kokomo. The train was manufactured in Dayton, Ohio, in the mid-late 1950s. It is what is known as a 24-inch gauge, meaning the track it rode on was 24 inches in width. It originally pulled four passenger cars that sat 50 people per car. Almost every child (and adult) loves to ring the train bell, which is still intact.
