Tin Man Diner - North Falmouth, MA

New article about the Tin Man posted here.

Back in March 2008, the RoadsideOnline site reported this diner was reopening. In the weeks and months following, we scanned the newswire in anticipation of updates on the diner.

If you haven't seen the past news articles, the original My Tin Man diner was damaged in a fire on November 24, 2000. Almost three years later what remained of a 1941 Sterling Streamliner was moved into a field next to the Handy Hill Creamery, in Westport, MA. While it looks doubtful whether it will be restored, Steve Harwin of Diversified Diners has brought back many diners thought beyond restoration by others.When we visited the diner last Sunday, Barbara Lind was outside getting things ready for an inspection prior to approval for reopening. She graciously gave us a tour and spoke about it took to reopen the former Wendell's. The diner's condition had deteriorated over the years and it sat unoccupied for last three years. The picture to the right can only show part of this hard work and determination. We look forward to visiting again.

It's expected that the Tin Man diner will be open 7AM to 7PM.
