Today, McDonald's restaurants are known for having colorful, plastic playgrounds for kids to work off the calories from their cheeseburgers. But for many years, two Billings locations were home to a different type of playground. At one location, children could play on a decommissioned Northern Pacific Railway caboose and playground equipment shaped like iconic McDonald's characters while their families dined at outdoor tables. Billings' first McDonald's, at 1046 Grand Ave., was demolished in 1994, to be rebuilt with a more modern design. The caboose was moved to the location at 1524 Main St., where it sat until the restaurant was closed in 1998 and converted into a KFC. The caboose was moved to the Billings Depot, where it sat until being moved to the Izaak Walton Inn in Essex in 2012.
