The Dining Car as a house.
To construct the house, the Dining Car and a small sleeping car were placed side by side with about 15ft in between and a roof built over the top. This gave a house with four bedrooms in the sleeping car, a dining room and kitchen in the Dining Car, and a sitting room in between.
This photograph shows the two ends of the carriages. The long window in the centre ran between the carriages and illuminated the sitting room. The front door of the house was the end door of the Dining Car, and can be seen to the right of the long window. The blank piece of wall immediately to the left of the long window is the end of the sleeping car.
