"For those who ever traveled on America's great passenger trains, eating in the dining car was often the most memorable experience. Just how did they prepare those gourmet meals in such tight quarters - magic!
"This volume presents the story of Southern Pacific dining car fleet which provided unsurpassed meals for 65 years aboard 140 dining cars, 26 all-day lunch cars, and 36 club and lounge- observation cars. Learn how it all came together starting at the commissary, loading the diners, and cooking aboard those small kitchens."
