Yes, that's a real train car complete with a railroad crossing and lights in a Kalamazoo backyard.

Kalamazoo is a great place to see the unusual.  From the freak show that we call the Do-Dah Parade to kayaking in the flooded Homer Stryker Field.

But this is unusual and I assume pricey.  Just West of Downtown Kalamazoo on South St. and Sprague Ave you find a display that would make Shelden Cooper blush.
