SCRANTON, Pa. — A Scranton-based preservation group has purchased Delaware, Lackawanna & Western dining car No. 469 to preserve it. The car has been on display in Collierville, Tenn., since the 1990s.

No. 469 is in excellent condition, and was used as a full-service restaurant until last year. The Erie Lackawanna Dining Car Preservation Society said it plans to paint the car into its historic DL&W colors and move it to Scranton for excursions in the Pocono Mountains.

The car served on the Phoebe Snow, DL&W’s premiere passenger train. It was built in 1949.
