It’s Super 8 Movie Night!

Gary Grahl (ERA #2823), whose Super 8 movie nights have become an annual tradition, will be the presenter of our November meeting. His presentation, “The Return of the Trolley,” will include:

  • Charlotte, North Carolina: An excellent example of an expanding light rail system at its most creative, making major changes in this city;
  • Pittsburgh: From PCC local trolley hill-climbers to a modern light rail system;
  • San Francisco: Views of the L-Taraval Street and J-Church Street lines, from PCC to light rail operation;
  • Philadelphia: Historic PCC operations on 53/Wayne Avenue (first PCC line) and 56/Erie-Torresdale Avenues lines; and
  • Cleveland: Scenes from Shaker Heights Rapid Transit — an early version of suburban light rail — from Peter Witts, to PCCs, to light rail.

Please join us for a wonderful presentation!

Preceding our November show — in the same room — the 2018 Annual Membership Meeting of the Electric Railroaders’ Association, Inc. will start promptly at 7:15 PM. All ERA members are encouraged to attend. Gary’s presentation will follow the Annual Membership Meeting.
