In 1939 West Rochester Diner was advertised as "The Most Elaborate Diner in New York State". They toned it down a little for another ad as "Rochester's only Super-Diner". An ad from early 1940 reads, "Wait until you see the inside, modern and spic and span as the newest equipment can make it, plus a pledge to serve best foods in the best taste, economically and quickly. Bring the family. All Our Vegetables and Fruits are Birdseye Process Foods." You could get a Sunday dinner for 65 cents (children 1/2 price). Proprietor was Edward Dauphine, Chef was Ad Voyer
Joseph Caesar opened his first diner in 1938; there would eventually be two Caesar Diners in Wind Gap. In the early 1990s this diner was sold to make way for a Wendy's restaurant. The diner was to be removed to another location, possibly for refurbishment and a new life?
I don't know enough about PA's roads to say if these diners are one and the same location. The illustrations certainly look like different diner cars. The top illustration bears some of the hallmarks of a Kullman car circa 1950 which are missing from the bottom illustration, namely, the "fluted" red porcelain with stainless steel trim and the floor to ceiling glass blocks at the corners and near the entry.
