Dining by Rail is a hardcover book by James D. Porterfield with over 325 recipes.
As those fortunate enough to have ridden the great passenger trains of America at their peak will attest, no part of the experience survives so vividly in the memory as that of a sumptuous meal in the dining car; crisp linen, polished silver, attentive service,the passing panorama of American life--all accompanied by great food. Dining by Rail tells how that experience was created, recapturing the lively history of eating on the train and presenting several hundred wonderful recipes that entertained and fortified the hungry traveler from coast to coast.
Dining by Rail provides over 325 simple and easy-to-follow recipes. It is fully indexed by railroad and menu item. Over 150 illustrations help to give a complete picture of this most important aspect of travel: finding something good to eat, wherever you go.
The book is 7 1/4 inches by 9 inches with 325 pages and both brightly illustrated dust cover and book are in mint condition.
