STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) - Stillwater officials have ordered the owner of the Minnesota Zephyr dinner train to remove two locomotives from his property within 45 days.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (https://bit.ly/1yOKYks ) the Stillwater City Council voted to extend the deadline for Dave Paradeau. It declared the locomotives a public nuisance in August and set a September removal deadline after photos of children climbing on the trains circulated on social media.

The city says it will move the locomotives at Paradeau’s expense if he doesn’t remove them himself.

Paradeau says he’s working to have them removed as soon as possible. He has said the locomotives have been on the property for 27 years.

Paradeau ran the dinner train out of Stillwater for more than 20 years before selling the train corridor to the state in 2011.
