Feeding The Passengers

In WW2 large passenger trains stopped in Delmar carrying 300 to 2000 passengers.  The cars would block the streets as far south as Chestnut street.  There were only three possible restaurants in town to feed them plus the dinning car.  There was Seth Ellis, Howard Nichols, and a place on Grove street, not nearly enough to feed the crowd.  The women in Delmar use to make sandwiches and go down to the end of East, Elizabeth and Chestnut street to sell chicken sandwiches for a quarter.
