Chicago Burlington & Quincy 150
|Description:||Nebraska Zephyr Dining Car|
CB&Q 150 “Ceres” is one of the five cars that make up the Nebraska Zephyr streamlined train. It is a dining car, designed with a built-in kitchen where full meals were cooked and prepared while moving. The car is articulated at both ends, which means that it shares its trucks with the adjacent cars in the train and cannot be uncoupled.
FUN FACT: The kitchen on the “Ceres” is fully functional, including its coal-fired stove. It has been used many times to provide meal service on the train, both during special events at the museum and during excursions to other destinations using the Nebraska Zephyr.
