WMSR Acquires ex-NYC Dining Car
Author: pt199

 Tourist railroad Western Maryland Scenic has acquired a streamliner era dining car.
The former New York Central grill diner was part of the Chattanooga [Tennessee] Choo-Choo hotel complex for more than 50 years.
WMSR officials said they hope to have it begin serving meals on their railroad during Memorial Day weekend 2023.
The dining car is expected to supplement a cafe lounge car that railroad officials said is often overwhelmed by demand for food and beverages.

The ex-NYC car, No. 456, has a seating capacity of 42. It was built by Budd in 1948 and typically operated on such trains as the James Whitcomb Riley, New England States, Ohio State Limited, The Pacemaker, Southwestern Limited and Twilight Limited.
The car became surplus when the company operating the Chattanooga hotel began a redesign and renovation project that will relocate some cars elsewhere on the property.
Four cars are being relocated to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum and two others, including ex-NYC 456, are going elsewhere. From the akronrrblog
