Special Needs Train Car Coming to Saginaw Children’s Zoo – The Good News [VIDEO]
The car will allow riders who are in wheelchairs to enjoy the train, just like everybody else.
It will be called the J.M. Zeile Coach, named after Jan Zeile. She spent most of her life teaching special needs children and adults and passed away last year.
Her sons, Kurt and Kim, say that the car will also be a tribute to their brother, who was confined to a wheelchair. The car will be part of $300,000 upgrades to the zoo, provided by generous donations.
They found a car in Pennslyvania, and workers are currently putting the finishing touches on it. It will start running in mid-June.
