Serve 12,000 Meals Every Day

Serve 12,000 Meals Every Day.

Pennsylvania Railroad dining car service has gradually developed and expanded through the years, until, to-day, 183 cars are in operation on over 200 trains a day. Some idea of the extent of this service may be gained from the fact that in 1927 an average of 12,000 meals were served every day in the Pennsylvania dining cars, or a total of approximately 4,000,000 meals for the year. Nearly 2000 persons are employed in the dining car department, including stewards, waiters, cooks, commissary workers, clerks, and a large group of miscellaneous employees.
