Better hope shit for brains from NY does not catch on to the coal burned to make that train go, won't fit into her new green fiasco

Converted to bunker oil burner by UP during the overhaul.

And when you stayed in the Red Caboose motel did you eat in the dining car restaurant.I have eaten there many times.

Yes, we had two meals in the dinning cars at the Red Caboose.  At the time of my visit, the cars were rigged up to add motion so it replicated running down the rails! 

A return trip to the Lancaster area is probably 3-4 years out.

Any one ever  eat at the Choo Choo Diner in Huntington Village? They would deliver you order to you at the counter on a  LGB steam engine and flatcars. Also there was the Rail Car Cafe in Stony Brook. A half dozen rail cars from passenger coaches to a few boxcars for dinning areas. Shame it's now the Curry Club Indian Restaurant.

Good German restaurant in Speonk on Long Island owner was an ex WWII POW who stayed here and now his children and grand children run it. Food worth traveling for.  My wife loved Chinese food until I told her the three letters translated into "We Buy Cats". Never ate Chinese food again. :)

We had an old school rootbeer stand locally that had either Lionel or LGB track hanging around the perimeter of the center walkway.  Sadly the owner passed, the property sold and it's now a Dollar General?  Something like that.  Sure do miss going there.

While I was lost in the woods in Pa I found an old fashion hotdog stand ,the place was huge ,there were picknick tables all set under a roof and there was an asphalt  floor there were like 4 or 5 seperate order stations selling different food . I have never been back but it is some place west of I81 and south of Scranton.

Place in Oyster Bay when I grew up called Bonanza's, been there since 1900. A little 8x8 stand sells hotdogs with home made mustard and an onion/pickle topping. Dogs are good but the best is their home made Lemon Ice. Spent a lot of lunch money there as a kid on the Ices. Town hates it because it's on "valuable" property and grandfathered in.

Down in Millville was a dinner that the guy was a lionel nut had a track up at the ceiling around the place and pretty nice trains on the walls plus the metal trucks and tractors baseball bats and all kinds of baseball stuff. it was never to long till your order of fresh made hamburgers and fries came. every time you went in there was something different to see. Four years ago the place burned down they got nothing out.
