The following are links to photos that were taken at the January 23, 1999 RailPAC Meeting
in Fullerton, California:
Photo Set #2 also includes pictures of Calvary Chapel High School students boarding
Bill Hattric's "Overland Trail" Private Car at the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot and heading to
their Winter Formal in San Diego. The "Overland Trail" used to be a Barber Shop Lounge Car
that is now available for private charter. The car was placed at the end of a southbound
Amtrak San Diegan consist. Thanks goes to Joseph Henchman and Steve Donaldson
(co-author of Rails Through the Orange Groves : A Centennial Look at the Railroads of
Orange County, California with William A. Myers) for identifying the event and the
private rail car for us.
Also shown in Photo Set #2 are photos from the interior of the TrainWeb office upstairs in
the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot, including our new Westec Alarm System Panel.
