I just went to the Clinton Station Depot restauraunt the other night. It wasn't too bad :) I remeber the car from when I used to go there in something like '96

Does anyone know anything interesting about the car there? Maybe someone who works there or something.

It is 1179 Blue Comet Biela, and has been there for more than 10 years.
Its in rather good shape and not to "Buggered" up. No holes ins the sides and the undercarriage seems to be in rather good shape its generator and battery boxes intact. As for the roof there have been additions but an easy fix. Sadly all of the original seats are missing. It certainly is a good candidate for restoration. It seems though the new owner loves it as much as we do.

The orginal seats were individual wicker chairs not attached to the floor fo the car, I have been told. The walkover seats were installed long after the Blue Comet era.
