An unusual church built from an old train chapel car in Rawlins is celebrating 85 years off the tracks.
The First Baptist Church in Rawlins was founded in 1925. The rounded-top doors came from the car, which was built in 1891 and served as a chapel for 34 years. TThe church started with just 29 members. It has been featured in the book “This Train is Bound for Glory: The Story of America’s Chapel Cars.”
