The 40 Line
Authors and San Francisco Market Street Railway members Walter Vielbaum and Bob Townley have had a lifetime interest in Bay Area transit. Vielbaum was the owner of Pacific Auto Repair, the oldest continuing auto shop in Burlingame, which is now owned by his son. Bob Townley is a retired train control signal engineer that has worked on many transit systems. His latest job was working on the train control for BART’s extension to San Jose.
A book signing will follow the presentation. Afterwards, visit the exhibit Journey to Work to discover more about streetcars in San Mateo County.
