Mini Diner 901

The work crew thought they had died and gone to heaven when this showed up on the work train. This is 901, a shorty diner in a grey/black paint scheme reminiscent of the 20th Century Limited. The Cape Ann needed to replace the worn-out “kitchen car” - a converted boxcar which featured take-out dining (no seating), and came up with this instead. This carries a 900-series road number which indicates non-revenue service, so it won’t appear on regular passenger trains. It will be shared between the MoW work trains and the business train.
