I just posted a rail car / diner yesterday, is today too soon to post another? nah!

A vintage 1938 O’Mahony diner, the Reading Diner was originally open in Exeter, PA. In 1950 it was moved across route 422 to become the basis of Fegley’s Family restaurant.

As the restaurant grew in size, it grew around the diner, so that from the outside you could barely tell that there was a diner at the heart of the restaurant. Inside the diner offered counter and booth service. The restaurant closed in 2003 and the diner was removed before the restaurant demolished. First moved to another site, it was later donated to the Boyertown Auto Museum, where it was repaired and had its grand unveiling in the spring of 2011. They did a fantastic job!
