Please correct the impression that diners were old RR and/or trolley cars.

Fewer than 5% of diners were such.

Most diners were (and are) made in factories and shipped out to the site.

Contact Daniel Zilka at the American Diner Museum for correct information.

My favorite diner is in a defunct Pizza Hut location. The real defining element is home fries.
