SPARKS — The Girl Scouts from Cadette Troop 165 of Spanish Springs touted their community pride by cleaning the train on Victorian Avenue on Sunday.

The girls vacuumed, dusted and polished the 100-year-old business car, which was recently restored by the city of Sparks and the Sparks Heritage Museum.

The scouts will be working on the area outside of the museum in a few weeks.

The train on Victorian Avenue is open to the public on weekends between 1 and 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Tours are available every 45 minutes during those hours and included in the price of admission to the museum located at 814 Victorian Ave.

City budget cuts have resulted in the laying off of many city maintenance workers and the Girl Scouts have decided to help out, museum executive director Anthea Humphreys said in a press release.

The museum is located on the corner of Victorian Avenue and Pyramid Way. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission costs $5 for adults, and is free for children under 12. The museum is fully donation funded and volunteer operated as a service to the citizens of Sparks. For more information, call 775-355 1144.
