"Sorry for the late reply as I just saw this post. Clinton is very close to some nice railroading items like that Diner. I know it was a CNJ car, correct?"
NP, and yes thats an ex-CNJ open end observation car "Monmouth". Wish they had kept the orig paint sceem. Foods not bad either.
Ran into Jim Boyd (the author etc.) up at steam town a while back and he said he's a member of some group that meets there one sunday every month to talk trains and stuff. Only I've forgotten which Sun he said and at what time. Always interesting to listen to Mr Boyd.
