Can you imagine the colossal screw up if the V-2 diners have 2 or 3 different configurations ? Make interchanging diners impossible without downgrading that train's diner service. IMHO it just does not make sense ?????

People have said they have seen plans but that may be all they have done.

One of such was assigned to an '08 Disney chartered train on which various ABC News personalities and their underlings measured the sentiments of voters.Cross Country Cafes are Superliners, which do have a full kitchen on the bottom floor - or at least used to.
