A railroad car that was attached to a McDonald's restaurant in Fall River has been permanently removed for a new life back on the rails.

The passenger car was lifted by cranes and placed on a flatbed truck on Monday.

The Herald News reported that the car will eventually go to the Newport and Narragansett Bay Railroad Company, where it will be rehabbed for use on the railroad.

The 1950s passenger car was a popular feature at the Canning Boulevard fast-food restaurant since 1982, according to the newspaper.

The McDonald's is being demolished and will be replaced with a new building.
