This past weekend I was at a wedding in north Jersey. It just so happened, they had a “recovery” brunch at a nearby diner. I was surprised to find out that half of this diner was actually an old train car from the blue comet.
Paul probably documented this somewhere, but it was a real surprise not expecting it.
To think this car was once racing through the pines in the 1930’s !

This diner has been on my list of places to check out for a while but I'm not often up in that corner of the state.

I have eaten there many times. They just did some remodeling to the outside of the car last year. Last time I was there I was eating next to the guy that runs the garage down at Winslow Junction. They have one of the Blue Comet cars there too. Try the burger challege and you could win some money

That's neat that a few cars were preserved and repurposed!
