A Piece of Railroad History

The dining car has a fascinating history. It was built in 1929 by American Car and Foundry in Saint Louis for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. ¬†Originally named the “Globe Coffee House”, it served on L&N named trains with a seating capacity of 36 and a crew of 9. After retiring from railroad service, it found a new life in Pensacola and Montgomery, Alabama, working in wrecker service.¬†

In 1942, the L&N began naming their dining cars after hotels and restaurants along their route, and our “Globe Coffee House” seems to have been named after a famous Cincinnati restaurant founded by Lew Boman in the 1800s.
