There was a Thanksgiving treat on the Downeaster this past Thursday.
Conductor Jim Nawrocki, his wife Ruth, engineer Gina and cafe attendant Marilyn set up a small complimentary buffet in the Cafe Car for the passengers.
As Jim said, “The passengers thought it was a wonderful gesture. What little chump change revenue we ‘lost’ for the Cafe Car, we more than made up for it in goodwill.”
Jim adds that they’ll likely repeat the ‘gift’ on Christmas.
Thanks to all for making the Downeaster America’s Favorite Train.
