Jim A. Loveland

Golden West Books, 1985


The Southern Pacific provided passengers with unsurpassed dining car service for almost 65 years. Dining aboard SP's 140 dining cars, 26 all-day lunch cars, 36 club and observation cars and 20 steamer restaurants was a rite of passage for the rail traveler. Here is the dining car saga-a big generous slice of it-served up in easy-to-read style, with a matchless gallery of 115 historical illustrations. Also presented are 36 choice recipes, from finger lick in' corn bread to Venison St. George.
