Menu Monday: PRR Penn Texas Childrens Menu
Author: Railpax71

We rode the PRR Penn Texas from Washington, D.C. to St Louis. My mother carefully saved the children's menu.  

The Penn Texas was a NYC to St. Louis train with a section from Washington to Harrisburg.

Did this train also carry a sleeper with PRR sub-lettering and in a red window band to match Frisco colors for continuation to Texas destinations?

Great condition. What year is it from?

Cars exchanged with MP on the Texas Eagle for service to Texas points and Frisco/MKT to Dallas/San Antonio. 

Menu circa 1958.

Interesting!

In April, 1958 four sleeping cars on the Penn Texas went to MP trains (New York to Houston, New York to San Antonio, New York to Fort Worth, and Washington to Houston). As noted, one New York to Dallas/San Antonio sleeper went to the Frisco.

As a former kid, I'm appalled........no pancakes or french toast for breakfast???  Maybe it's on the adult menu.
