When we lived years ago in Doraville, GA, there was (and still is) a Waffle House located immediately next to the railroad tracks that crossed Oakcliff Road and Northcrest Road off Interstate 85. Every once in a while, we’d see a sight that we thought would make a great TV commercial for promoting Waffle Houses.
The train would literally stop on the track behind the Waffle House and the engineer and other trainmen would step down from the train and walk into the Waffle House for food.
“Train Stopping Good Food” the ad could say.
Unbelievable as this seems, we saw it happen with our own eyes.
