So, after reading LSC Chef Devon’s post and learning you can openly admit, on the LSC, to having other hobbies in addition to railroading, I thought I enjoy food and rail, where around here can I do that?
I was reminded about the defunct Colonial Tramcar Restaurant that used to travel various places from the CBD in Melbourne along its vast tram network to the suburbs and back.
Now, historically, the view out of the restaurant tram was ok, not spectacular and most times, there was a car or truck that blocked the view, but… it was alway packed with locals and tourists. The food was good and the clickity clack was perfect.
Google took me here instead!
Somebody has put 3 train carriages on a roof and made it into a restaurant!
I know! The train goes absolutely nowhere! NOWHERE I SAY! Nowhere.
I know little about it other than it is a high end burger joint on Easey street.
These carriages, pictured above, reportedly look out over the city with great views.
It’s a It made me wonder if it’s blasphemy to ask on this forum if anyone knows of other railway themed places, diners or dinner trains near them that they would go first, for the food and secondly for the view, the smell of soot or diesel or the ride?
Oh and Devon, if you’re reading this, and if emigration is on your bucket list… we’ve got one of these in broad gauge, no less, and a roundly-round at the national railway museum and a spice importer warehouse just down the road.
…happy to forward them your resumè.
