|This is the Lone Star at Rosenberg,Tx. From the books and info I have this was the only diner Amtrak had from the KCS (not in 1971 but purchased in 1974) Built in 1948 by ACF for the Southern Belle as the Old Plantation (current KCS diner Jackson is possibly this car?). I rarely saw this diner but was pleasantly surprised to see it on the Lone Star consist at Houston. Usually the equipment was ex-Santa Fe. I had to try it out so with the Sunday schedule at the time I took the Lone Star to Rosenberg (about 35 miles) had a great breakfast (still a few ex-Santa Fe chefs working) got off and waited a couple of hours for the eastbound Sunset Limited -- relaxed in the lounge back to Houston.
