Did anyone buy the place yet?

Just heard back from the real estate agent yesterday - Choo Choos is still for sale, and they have reduced the price to $69,900. If you've always wanted to run a business along the Katy Trail in a nice little town (Marthasville), here's the opportunity!

No word as to whether Choo Choos will even open this summer, until after it's in the hands of the next owner.

The realtor is http://www.realtorvanessa.com/. I could not find the listing on her website, so I sent her another message asking where to find the listing - will post when I get the info.

Hmmmmmmm. Doug K's Katy Trail Custard. Has a nice ring to it.

Out of curiousity, it does not appear there is much difference between Choo's Choo's railcar and Cruce's Cabooses in Calhoun. I have been by Choo's Choo's many times, but only went past Cruce's once and really did not notice them.

Would it be possible to turn Choo's Choo's into camping/"lodging" similar to Cruce's rather than a custard stand/fast food? I would like to see something there(instead of weeds and an old railcar), and was wondering if the camping/"lodging" option is workable there.

It's set-up like a fast food/custard stand on the inside. I'm not sure if you would have to "gut" it or not. But hey, It'd make a nice place in Marthasville.
