1979 Dinner Menu

This menu quite obviously goes with yesterday’s lunch menu. The cartoon locomotive on the cover is exactly the same, though the sky is darker suggesting an evening rather than a noon meal. The other cars in the train shown on the other pages are double-deckers, indicating Superliners, rather than the single-deckers on the lunch menu.

The taller cars apparently used up the space that the lunch menu devoted to advertising Amtrak’s accomplishments, as this menu does not include any such crass diversions. The menu offers four dinner entrĂ©es: New York steak, salmon, roast beef, and roast duck. The steak dinner was $8.95, or about $30 in today’s dollars.
