10-stool model originally owned by Jack Nichols in Chinook as the Diesel Diner. Later moved to Conrad in 1959, where it operated as the Trail Cafe and later Betty’s under Betty Nierstheimer. Purchased by a group home and operated by special needs clients, until closing in the 1980s. Purchased in the mid-1990s by Pete and Maxine Woods, who moved it to Chester (409 E. Washington St.), next to the Hi-Line Vintage Motors Museum, where they named it Sugar Shack and served ice cream. Closed in the early 2000s. Purchased by Kimberly and Rory Seditz, who moved it to Rudyard in Oct. 2018. Reopened 14 May 2019.
