Special Gourmet Dinners in the Dining Car

To nourish the train's public profile, the museum promoted the natural charms of the "Argyle." Combining the ingredients of the car's original intended use and the need to raise additional operating and restoration funds, the museum created the idea of offering specialty banquets in the dining car. Many of these dinners are designed around famous passenger trains of the world, such as Egyptian cuisine for the Star of Egypt, Japanese food for the Tokaido Bullet, and an Australian meal for the Indian-Pacific Express. Dressed in formal wear or sometimes period costume, guests have a chance to relive the halcyon days of the dining car.
