All Aboard the McDonald's Railroad

NOTE: This post comes from outside the blog's coverage area.

While en route to visit Utica, I made visiting this particular McDonald's a must stop for one reason; a railroad caboose! Obviously this got me to visit and take a few pictures before this place falls victim to the corporate cookie-cutter eyebrow. I haven't returned since visiting this place, as it is a considerable distance away, but it would not surprise me to learn if this no longer exists as seen below. 


Classic drive-thru
Before we dive into looking at the caboose, here's a few interior pictures of the place.



While locked at the time, this is how one would access the caboose from inside. Thankfully, it is a just a glass window corridor, so you weren't missing anything.
Now for the main attraction:
The glass corridor as seen from outside.



It was cool to see that customers could eat inside the caboose, just not today as it was locked.

Former Kmart #4010

NOTE: This post comes from outside the blog's coverage area.

The original Pittsburgh area store, which opened its doors back in 1963, is the Kmart tour for the month of June. It closed its doors for the last time in January 2019 as part of the 2018 Sears Holdings bankruptcy. The store did not feature any specialty departments such as a pharmacy or cafe at the time of my visit. Apparently it did have a Little Caesars at one time though.

Lakewood Bon-Ton Liquidation

This particular Bon-Ton, located outside Jamestown in Lakewood, NY, was a location that I enjoyed in particular while documenting most Bon-Ton stores in the area. I do believe it was built at some point in the 1980s and made use of a former Woolworths to gain access to the Chautauqua Mall. Not much more to say than that, so I shall let the pictures do the talking.
