Blue Comet dining Car Dishware

Post by The Blue Comet » Thu Jun 23, 2016 7:11 am

My Grandfather, Bish Smith was an Engineer on the Blue Comet and this wonderful train is near and dear to me. Am looking for any pictures or collections of the dishware used in the dining car. Were the dished specially designed for this train? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

This is one of my go-to sites. At the moment, he has no china for the CNJ, let alone the Blue Comet.

I'll ping member CNJ. He might have resources.

I've also moved this the the CNJ sub forum of fallen flags. You might have better luck here (I did leave a shadow at NJ Railfan).
