In Bunkerville, Nevada, there's a notable landmark known as the Bunkerville Choo Choo. It belongs to a rancher and stands out because it looks like a train engine. Yet, there's some wrangling about its origins. Some think it was intentionally built to resemble a train engine, while others believe it might be an actual train engine that was converted into a water tank. The truth is it was part of a Choo Choo in the distant past.
