Visitor Comments about this Photo:

The tail end car in the photo was originally named "Café Normandy" and ran on the Winnipesauke Railroad. Hobo's Eddie Clark lobbied hard to transfer the car to Lincoln where it succeeded in drawing additional business to the railroad. It soon changed owners and was eventually joined by the kitchen car, the dome car and the standard coach modified to be a diner plus the generator car. All this under Lance and Leslie. After many years they have passed the dinner train on to new enthusiastic owners.
