Shining Rails

January 23, 1975, Appleton Post-Crescent
Long past its heyday in railroad usage, Menasha kept its railroad history alive in the guise of the Shining Rails Dining Room in the Hotel Menasha.  Seeing as the hotel was the birthplace, so to speak, of railroading in the community (as memorialized with a plaque outside the building), the theme made a lot of sense.  Regardless of its name over the years, it still maintained its famous Friday evening smorgasbord.
