Police say a 25-foot electric passenger train and trailer that were stolen from the San Francisco Bay Area have been found.

KTVU reports (https://bit.ly/2uREjY8) both were discovered on Monday morning in the East Bay city of Walnut Creek.

The train was in a black utility trailer in nearby Pleasant Hill when it was stolen from a parking lot Saturday night or early Sunday.

Train owner Eric Sossamon says the trackless train seats 16 to 20 people comfortably and makes regular appearances at festivals and parties.

A woman who spotted the trailer in question near her workplace took a photo of it and posted it to Sossamon’s Facebook page. This led police to investigate and recover the trailer and the train.
