Washington - Frank's Diner

Spokane, WA - During the golden days of railroading, Barney-Smith and Pullman vied for supremacy of the elegant rail car business. In 1906, Barney Smith manufactured this car as an “observation car”. It remained unsold until 1909, when it was purchased by the Northern Pacific Railroad and remodeled to suit their needs as a private car for the president of the railroad.

Car NO. 1787 (this car) served as a presidential car until it was replaced in 1931.

Stranded in Seattle at the height of the depression, NO 1787 found a new home. Franks Knight, the brother and sometime partner of jack Knight of Spokane, bought the presidential car and converted it into a diner car in 1931. With over 100 years of dining elegance we are proud you have chosen to share your day with us.

Frank's Diner has a second location outside of the downtown area, housed in 1913 Laketon NO 4216 railcar.
