In the early 1900s, the regal railcar you sit in today was born amidst a fervent competition between Barney-Smith and Pullman. Crafted in 1906 as an “observation car” by Barney Smith, it found its true calling in 1909 when the Northern Pacific Railroad transformed it into a presidential car, Car NO. 1787.
In 1931, destiny steered this car into the hands of the visionary Frank Knight. Amidst the echoes of the Great Depression, Car NO. 1787, found a new track, as it was lovingly converted into Frank’s Diner.
Fast forward to today, and we are honored to continue serving delectable dishes with over a century’s worth of elegance and history backing each plate.
