The second chapter of “The Railman Throughout Dayton History” details one of America’s most influential African-American poets, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and his love of the Railman.

Paul Laurence Dunbar was born and raised in Dayton. His legacy lives on with many institutions named after him, including Paul Laurence Dunbar Library at Wright State University and multiple Dunbar High Schools all around the nation, including one in Dayton.

It seems that there was an early draft of one of his more famous poems, ‘ A Golden Day’, that mentions the Railman.

In honor of the Railman and Paul Laurence Dunbar, we are serving a Railman with french fries and a fountain drink for $9.99 today!

Soups today will be Baja Chicken Enchilada, Italian Wedding, and Loaded Baked Potato along with Chili, Chicken Noodle, and Lobster Bisque.
