Interesting Food Recipes
This is an interesting and very informative history of dining service on the New Haven Railroad. It includes data on the service itself as well as the cars used.
Additionally, the book reproduces many of the recipes that the New Haven chefs used to prepare the meals. Thus, it is not only a good overview of the service and equipment, but serves as a cookbook with authentic recipes that can be used today.
The New Haven was widely known for its commuter service, but also had a large regular passenger train operation, and the dining cars were integral to that business, as they were on most railroads.
