BELGRADE, Serbia, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Serbia's Railway Transport Company has put former Yugoslavian leader Marshal Josip Broz Tito's Blue Train back on the tracks as a tourist attraction.

The ten-carriage train features perfectly preserved bathrooms, meeting rooms and restaurants, the Times of London reported Sunday.

One hundred and forty guests paid about $30 each for the four-hour trek from Belgrade to the central Serbian town of Vrnjacka Banja, the train's maiden voyage as a tourist attraction.

The diesel-powered presidential train had been put into storage after it's final trip in 1980, carrying the body of Tito through the distraught country.
