Flashback Minis: The Streamliner Diner

The Streamliner Diner sat on the corner of East Market and Pine streets in Warren in the 1940s. In 1953, it was moved from its original location to Ellwood City, Pa. where it operated for many more years. The diner was modeled after a streamlined style that came from experiments with aerodynamic train cars.

The modern design was popular in the 1930s after WWI. The first sterling streamliner cars were manufactured in 1939 and soon after the Streamliner Diner model was invented.

First Federal Savings and Loan was built on the Streamliner Diner’s previous plot of land. That building is now home to the Trumbull County archives.
