Dining Car "Epicurus"
Fine dining has long been associated with the luxury rail travel experience. This proud tradition continues aboard our privately owned authentic railroad Dining Car "Epicurus".
Continental cuisine is freshly prepared onboard and served railroad china by courteous waiters. Delight-in timeless favorites....from real Santa Fe Railroad French Toast....to tender broiled filet Mignon Steaks.
The "Epicurus was built in 1950 by the Pullman Standard Company for the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad. It logged many miles traveling between Chicago and Los Angeles pleasing hungry passengers of the "El Capitan" streamliner train.
Our thorough restoration recreates the 1950's experience. Gleaming stainless steel and art-deco trim will bring to mind pleasant memories of that great streamline era. Clear picture windows offer unobstructed views of the passing countryside. The addition of modern mechanical systems ensures the comfort and safety of all.
For your enjoyment you'll find the "Epicurus" a noted feature of our Scenic Dining Car Journeys. The "Epicurus" is the only authentic Amtrak-compatible Dining Car available for private charter. It may be utilized to host a regional excursion....or a transcontinental American journey in conjunction with Parlor, Observation and Sleeping Cars.
