She was then acquired by the Illinois RR and run on train #1, “The City of New Orleans”. It was brought across the United States by rail and restored in the engine house of the Hobo Railroad during the winter of 1996. Leslie, Lance and their two chefs, Doug Trulson and Scott Buckland along with a friend Tom Sabourn, made the impossible happen; taking only six months to rebuild exterior steel, design and restore the interior, install new windows, and give this magnificent car a royal blue and white paint job, then renaming her the “Granite Eagle”.  We will enjoy a spectacular four course dinner along our scenic journey.  (B,D)
