Trolley Pizzaria
Lowell, MA
Trolley Pizzaria is not a real diner but I'll include it here anyway. "Real" diners were prefabricated and never used as train dining cars or trolleys. They were shipped from the diner manufacturer in one piece and installed at their locations. The Trolley Pizzaria was built in Salisbury, MA in the late 1940s to look like a Sterling Streamliner diner. Some of the equipment and stools were purchased from Worcester, a diner manufacturer. The faux diner operated originally as Evans' Streamliner. In 1956, it was moved to Lowell where it operated as "Bryer's Streamliner". Around 1981 when it was known as the Gorham Street Diner, the building was remodeled to look like a trolley car. It became the Trolley Pizzaria at that time. For more, see this website. [map]

Capitol Diner
Lynn, MA
The Capitol Diner is a Brill from 1928. This is believed to be the last operating Brill diner in the country. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The diner was originally known as the "Miss Lynn Diner". When it changed hands in 1938, it was renamed to refer to the Capitol Theatre across the street which is now gone. For more, see this website.
