Plenty of places to eat in downtown Kenton - important since every train, passenger and freight, stops here. High end dining can be had at the Kentonian, a refurb heavyweight car, with the attached "Gastrodome" lounge. Behind that we have the Hotel Kenton, The Oasis (dancing-bar-casino-marriage licenses-live bait), and the Trolley Diner.

They are not equipped for the 40 footers. 40 footers are transloaded at Quinn Intermodal Terminal at Davis.
