After it was taken out of service it was used in Pensacola and Montgomery, Alabama wrecker service.

In 1942 the L&N named several of their dining cars for hotels and restaurants along their route. Our "Globe Coffee House" appears to have been named for a restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio, founded by renowned restaurateur Lew Boman in the 1800s.
