Watch A Real Train Lumber Past As You Eat At The Boxcar, A Railroad-Themed Diner In West Virginia

If you love trains, you’ve got to visit the town of St. Marys, West Virginia. It’s a unique place, where the train runs right through the center of Main Street – a rare option known in the railroading world as “street running” that occurs in just a few spots around the nation. But it gets better: you can watch this train through a huge picture window while chowing down on some of the best burgers you’ve ever tasted in a railroad-themed restaurant called The Boxcar.
