Dear Editor: On Friday, Sept. 28, I had to be in court, on behalf of my granddaughter, who is only 5 months old. I have ha d her from the day she was born. Just recently her mother and father both signed temporary custody over to me. On Friday, Sept. 28 CPS took her from me, for no reason at all. When I ask why CPS answered "they were afraid her mother or father could come at any time and take her." That means they never lost custody of her. However, CPS stated that they found the parents allegedly "unfit" so in that case how could the parents come take her? I never got to even talk to the judge or CPS. Just came out of the room and said they were going to J drive, raising money to purchase toys and clothing for the children's Christmas. The children in the program range in age from newborn to twelve years of age.

Long RESTAURANTS ON WHEELS FOR RAIL SERVICE During the hey-day of passenger travel on the C&O Railway, their first class trains, The Fast Flying Virginian, The Sportsman and The George Washington, carried some fancy dining cars. In preparation for its most important train, the George Washington, three diners were constructed exclusively for this train, Raleigh Tavern, Mitchie's Tavern and Gadsby's Tavern, Gadsby's Tavern is now the property of The C&O Historical Society, has been refurbished and located in CSXT Coach Yard at Clifton Forge, Va. Over the years feeding passengers in transit has evolved from the sales person on platforms at depot stops to the picnic basket lunch carried by the passenger taking a lengthy journey; from there to the News Butch riding trains and advertised regular meal stops such as at Alderson, W. Va., and Kanawha Falls, W. Va., on the C&O. From Agenda meal stops to terminal depot lunch rooms and finally to the restaurant on wheels, the diner. It is thought the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad operated the first railway dining car on its line between Philadelphia and Baltimore in 1863. These cars were not constructed exclusively for restaurant service but instead were some old baggage cars converted to a make-shift diner having a counter nearly the full length of the car. Food was not prepared in transit as in later years, instead, was placed on the car at the terminal immediately before the train departed. The Train Dispatcher issue of Jan.-Feb. 1966 had an interesting article about dining cars and is reprinted in part by permission.: "In 1867, George M. Pullman who originated the Pullman sleeping car, brought out what was known as the "hotel car." After acceptance by the traveling public of bed-equipped cars for overnight or longer journeys, the need began to be felt for some means of providing meals for the passengers, so that both food and lodging could be furnished those who set out on long trips. Pullman was among the first to recognize this need, and his hotel car was an effort to meet it. He simply installed a kitchen in one end of a sleeping car. After the passengers arose in the morning and the sleeping berths were reconverted by the porter or brakeman in to day-time seats, portable tables were placed between the facing seats, and meals served from the "hotel car" kitchen. The first three hotel cars were named "President," "The Western World" and "Kalamazoo." Cars of this type were operated on the Michigan Central and the Great Western of Canada.

The "Delmonico" was put in service in 1868 on the Chicago and Alton, and additional Pullman diners were added later that same year. The Michigan Central and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad decided to operate diners on their trains at about the same time. The Chicago and Alton, however, is generally credited with having Drivers: CDL-B: Great Pay, Hometimel No-Forced Dispatch! New singles from Dublin, VA to surrounding states.

We Pay Cash - No Lot Too Small Or Large inaugurated the dining car system in a general way. The M. C. and C. B. & Q. began the use of diners during the year 1875. "During this period, the C & A diners were operated between Chicago and St. Louis, and were onstructed and managed by the Pullman Company. The price for any meal was $1.00. Later the Alton acquired an interest in the cars and ultimately assumed full control of them. "In the late 1870s a man named Charles Nordhoff made a trip from New York to California and wrote his observations for the magazine Harper's Monthly in an article titled, "California - How to Go and What to See." In the article he complains vigorously about the eastern trains which tore along at the ridiculous speed of 40 m. p. h. As he expressed it, "at 35 or 40 miles per hour the country you pass through is a blur; one hardly sees through the telegraph poles; reading tires your eyes, writing is impossible, conversation impractical except at the auctioneer pitch, and the motion is wearing and tiresome." "Regarding diners, Mr. Nordhoff wrote, "From Chicago to Omaha your train will carry a dining car which is a great curiosity in its way. I expected to find this somewhat greasy, a little untidy and with the smell of kitchen. But in fact it is as neat, as nicely fitted, as trim and clean as though Delmonico himself had furnished it; and though the kitchen is in the forward end of the car, so perfect is the ventilation that there is not even the faintest odor of cooking. You order your breakfast, dinner or supper from a 1]ill of fare which contains quite a surprising number of dishes, you eat admirably cooked food from snow white linen, and pay a moderate price. It is now the custom to charge a dollar per meal and this is not too much.
