History

The Moultrie, WATX 400, is your elegant restaurant on wheels, adding the final touch when entertaining for business or pleasure. Restored to its original 36-seat dining car configuration, the Moultrie reflects the golden years of passenger train travel. The dining area has been refurbished in an elegant manner while keeping dependability, quality, and comfort as key objectives. Convenience of modern day food preparation and service was also kept in mind during the restoration project. The climate control heating and air conditioning system maintains a comfortable environment inside the car.

Dining in the Moultrie is a unique experience enhanced by the matched china, crystal, silverware, and table linen supplied with the diner. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils, pots, and pans for complete dinner preparation for groups several times larger than the seating capacity of the diner.

The full-size kitchen features an all-electric 10-burner (Vulcan) range with 2 large ovens along with a griddle, a 60-inch steam table, 7 refrigeration units and three freezers, 3 large sinks, and a Hobart dishwasher. The built-in cabinets and counters in the kitchen are long and wide for the convenience of food preparation.

The Moultrie is AMTRAK approved with head-end power, 27-point connection, main reservoir airline, MU (Push/Pull) connectors, and superliner compatibility. The car is fully self-contained with a generator, as well as, station standby and pressurized water system.
