ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) — A locomotive named after President Dwight Eisenhower is back at home and on display near Green Bay.

The National Railroad Museum loaned the World War II-era railroad artifact to the National Railway Museum of York, England in 2012 for an exhibit on A4 locomotives.

As part of the agreement, the train also underwent a cosmetic restoration.

Following WWII, Great Britain gifted the steam engine to the United States for U.S. support during the war. It was named the Dwight D. Eisenhower after the Army general and future president who had commanded allied forces in Europe.

The railroad museum in Ashwaubenon has created a permanent exhibit highlighting the locomotive.

It's one of six A4 locomotives left in the world and the only one in the U.S.
