The Midway Diner is located in Sedalia half way between Greensboro and Burlington on East Wendover (US 70). This photo makes the wooden rail car, built at the turn of the PREVIOUS century, look like it is in a secluded, wooded setting. In actuality, the defunct diner is a stone's throw from the bustling Rock Creek Dairy Road and Stoney Creek Crossing. This architecturally significant wooden rail car has been sitting in the present location since 1937 and, in its diner days, attracted customers from all over. They served hot dogs, pimento cheese sandwiches and other diner fare. It is rumored that Elvis Presley dined here. Greensboro's cultural historian Jim Schlosser featured a great article about the diner in the News and Record this past March.
We're sharing this with Ruby Tuesday where photos with at least a touch of red get shared with the world. (The diner looks redder in real life).
