For the last commuter rail bar car in the US, it’s the end of the line. Last night, the 7:34 train left from Grand Central Station to New Haven – that bar car’s final ride. The cars, which have dwindled to one or two a day at most, are now gone, as the rail line continues its switch from the old M2 cars to new M8s. Built by Kawasaki Rail Car of Japan, the new cars were designed without bar cars – and they can’t be connected to the old coaches. So, no more bar car, kids. Don Draper & Sons, goodnight.
