dining car interior photos

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am looking for photos of dining car interiors. Specifically photos showing place settings and the styles of china, silver and service pieces used in the early "streamliner" era. I suspect that photos onboard the Tennessean's diner, or similar trains, are what I am looking for. The photos do not have to be perfectly clear, even a glimpse might be helpful. I have a good idea about what I am looking for and just need a confirmation.

Check the Norfolk Southern photo archives at Virginia Tech. http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/imagebase/ Even though this is N&W material, enter Tennessean in the search area. There are several interior pictures of the Tennessean diner and lounge car made in 1941.
