PART: Palo Alto "Rapid" Transit

January 30, 2022
2:00 - 3:00 pm
Via Zoom Webinar

PAHA will be presenting the history of the electric trolley system in Palo Alto. This popular program was first presented in 2007 when PAHA's historian, Steve Staiger and PAHA videographer Brian George, recorded a video on the topic.

The video features a ride on a Peninsular Railways' Number 52, a streetcar that once ran from Palo Alto to San Jose and is still in operation at the Western Railway Museum in Solano County. Steve will host the webinar and be available for questions and answers at the end of the presentation.

Join us via Zoom on January 30th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.

Registration is not required. Simply click on the link above at 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 30th to join.
