About this title:


First edition of this fascinating history of the dining cars on the Northern Pacific. The book describes the duties of each of the cooks and waiters, how meals were served to passengers and crew, how the early railroads dealt with feeding people, how the NP was built, how Henry Villard and Pullman created the modern dining car, the growth and evolution of the the NP's dining service and 150 genuine NP recipes. And of course, there are photos of their famed giant baked potatoes! Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. 164 pages.

Product Description: For as long as the Northern Pacific operated as a transcontinental railroad, it ran the nation's best dining car service. Using sources ranging from railroad records of the 1860s to personal stories furnished by former waiters and stewards of the 1960s, McKenzie deftly weaves a fascinating history that is fully illustrated and richly detailed.
