The one diner did end up in Maine.  A club I am a member of looked into 
buying it and another N&W passenger car as a possible home for our 
layout.  The problem  was that the condition of the cars was so bad that 
they would have fallen apart if moved, this was in the mid 1980's.  The 
sides still looked good from the pictures that I saw.
