Abstract:

"For millions of travelers on the Northern Pacific Railway's northern route, the crowning touch to each journey was the "Famously Good" food graciously served in the elegant dining cars at every mealtime. In Dining Car Line to the Pacific author Bill McKenzie tells the behind-the-scenes story of the NP's service that regularly delivered "the surpassing enjoyment of a trip in the company of western scenery; an amiable steward; friendly, efficient, and immaculately clad waiters; and food right out of a dream." The book documents the development of dining car service; describes food procurement and preparation; identifies the people who directed the operation and those who prepared and served the food; and points out ways the service was employed to promote the railroad. Using a range of sources from railroad records of the 1860s to personal stories furnished by former waiters and stewards of the 1960s, McKenzie deftly weaves a history that is fully illustrated and fascinating in its richness and detail."--Back cover.
