Nothing Could Be Finer Than A Frisco Diner
[5405]
$59.95

Food service on the St. Louis–San Francisco Railroad began with a single dining car converted from a coach and grew into a fleet of 34 dining cars serving the Frisco’s nine-state territory in the mid-1940s. Immediately after World War II, brand new streamlined dining cars were added to the Frisco’s fleet. It was a time when businessmen, celebrities and families on vacation routinely took the train to their destinations, and dinner in the diner was a special treat. Frisco's dining cars developed a reputation for serving the finest food on rails. This book preserves the memories of the people who made the dining car experience possible, and to pass on the lure of the dining car to generations that have never known the appeal of "dinner in the diner.”
