Southern Pacific Rail Car Exposed with Vic Stewart’s Demolition in Walnut Creek

Late last year we learned that Vic Stewart’s would be closing in downtown Walnut Creek and now that the building is getting demolished to make room for new retail space, the Southern Pacific rail car is visible before it gets shipped off to the Martinez Historical Society museum. Thanks to a reader for pointing out this cool historical piece of Walnut Creek!

They note:

I think this is the first time the car has been visible since it was placed there in 1974 when the building was moved here and converted to a restaurant.
