Dinner in the Diner

Among all the other attractive events that will be provided this 60th Anniversary Museum Showcase Weekend, the Zephyr crew will be serving lunch in the Ceres again during operations.  The food is prepared on the train, so it's labor intensive, just like the old days.  We didn't mention it at the time, but my wife and I were visiting and ate on the Zephyr over Labor Day weekend, and it was quite good.  And just so there isn't any sticker shock, I'm including the menu.  This is, in part, a fundraising device for the continuing restoration and maintenance of the Zephyr, but we both thought it quite reasonable.  I'm guessing the same menu will be in effect this weekend.

We both had the ribeye steak sandwich, and it was very good.  We happened to be sitting with Don Askleaf and his wife; they both had the pork chop plate, and were both very satisfied.  And even if you've seen the same scenery a few hundred times before, it's still fun to dine while riding the train.  So this is something else you won't want to miss.  Yummm!

I thought hats or hairnets were in style in food service. No money?

Interesting pic of the kitchen at work. Look at that box on the shelves. "May I have a side of ROADKILL HELPER?"

Well, the two women (Linda is on the right) are wearing the right sort of hat, and Scott has a cap. As for the other two, I don't know. We'll have to ask the steward.
