Geissenheimer Testimonial Dinner

Saturday, June 14, 2003

The ERA held a testimonial dinner for Harold Geissenheimer. Mr. Geissenheimer is a former ERA president and editor of Headlights and is an avid promoter of electric traction. He has also held the post of general operations manager of CTA, helped revive the Pittsburgh streetcar system, and now publishes Transnet, an online newsletter about the transit industry.

Mr. Geissenheimer presented a slideshow that answered the question, “What is Light Rail?” The dinner was the second in a series honoring individuals who have made invaluable contributions to the ERA and the transit industry as a whole. The first dinner honored Arthur Lonto.
