Group Description

I Sing the Diner Porcelain-Enamel

I'm a big fan of diners, and Worcester Diners are my hands-down favorite. The porcelain enamel panels with the name along the side, the barrel and monitor roofs, the tile and woodwork inside--I can't get enough.

This is a place for photos of diners built in Worcester, Massachusetts by the Worcester Lunch Car Company. The picture is the main thing, but if you have it, please include name, location, WLCC serial number, and date of manufacture in the caption. Has somebody already posted a photo of a diner you wanted to post? So what? Post yours, too, and let us all enjoy your photo! If you see a diner you like here, go out and shoot it yourself and post it again--this isn't about winning, it's about diners.

And when it comes right down to it, I could be very easily convinced to include the odd Sterling, Pollard or Brill Steel diner. I am going to try to be a bit of a purist when it comes to built-on-site diners, though. Of course, some Worcester-built gems are quite well hidden, and if you can find a shred of the original factory-built car, or even the fossilized shape, that's good enough for me.

I won't put up any upload limits on for now, but I do ask that you not flood the group with a zillion of your however-wonderful photos at any one time. If you have a half dozen or a dozen--particularly of different facets and details of the same diner--feel free. If I cull them a bit, I'll try to contact you when I do it. If I can't or don't reach you for any reason, please take no offense and feel free to send me a flickr mail with any questions or concerns.

Have fun, and eat at diners!
