The other one

Is this the car that had all of the writing on it (Minetta's Diner, Shakes, Malts, Steaks, etc.)? or was it the yellow one next to it?

The yellow and red (and very rusty) one was the Harriman car. I always thought it was still up at the old diner site. The NP car (white & black/grey) on Ebay was moved to Tacoma from Easton to be restored.

Here are four shots from 2005. The last time I stopped by Easton (May 2010) I noticed the car in front was gone. This must be the NP car that was moved. I found the writing on this car to be very nostalgic!





Just imagine pulling off the highway for a stack of hotcakes, a bowl of chili, a burger or just a "malt." Those were the days!

Stopped there once in '78 for a cup of coffee. The place was a dump to the point that I decided to eat in Cle Elum.

Is the Harriman car still in Easton? I know it was the last time we went through town, last year, I think......

Where in the Tacoma area is this car, anyway?

I know it’s off topic, but does anyone know where the Harriman car end came from that is being used as part of the diner in Oakville? I live just a few miles away from it and have seen it hundreds of times, but have never been inside the building. I always wondered how it got there and why it’s just the end of the car.

Yes it is still at Easton. Stopped by this past Saturday (12-18-10) while driving to Cle Elum and got this photo of it.
