Yes, that’s what it was. A decommissioned CN dining car from 1928 was bought in Winnipeg and moved to Tatamagouche to function as a restaurant. Cabooses function as rooms for their hotel, the dining car is the restaurant. Quaint.
Food is topnotch as you can see by my Soup of the Day: Thai Chicken. Yum.
The seafood chowder is among the best we had anywhere, too.
The crab rolls (above) were nice, though the rice was a little dry. The chocolate torte (below) was everything a chocolate torte should be: dense, chocolatey, and yummy.
Service is great, and the little touches, such as the real flowers decorating the dishes, show an attention to detail that helps make dining an experience. If it’s a hot day and you’re concerned about sitting in a railway car in the heat, don’t be: the cars are air conditioned.

The inn is in Tatamagouche, along the Sunrise Trail in the Northumberland Strait part of Nova Scotia:
