This Train In Chicago Is Actually A Restaurant And You Need To Visit

Sure, Americans seem to prefer their automobiles and airplanes when it comes to transportation but there is something about riding the rails that conjures up feelings of nostalgia. There is something that seems intriguing and almost Old Hollywood about putting everything into a suitcase and traveling across country on a train. Visions of Some Like It Hot and The Harvey Girls dance in your head.

So while you may not choose to ride the rails to your next destination anytime soon, if you love the old time sentimentality that comes with kicking back in a train car and enjoying some good food while you’re at it then it’s time you visited Chicago’s very own The Silver Palm Restaurant.
