Our Next Program:
Texas Electric and the Journey to DART by Mark Walbrun
Mark Walbrun will present a program on the former Texas Electric, Dallas Railway and Terminal Co., and the new Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) lines, including the extensions to the McKinney Avenue trolley. Although much of the Texas Electric was obliterated, some of it survives in other forms including the former downtown terminal and the Plano substation. DART’s new Orange line to DFW airport is just about complete and the long awaited extension of the Blue Line to Rowlett opened this year. See the recently modified rolling stock operating at full speed down the Red Line, the new Green Line terminal, and much more. Come join us for what promises to be a fun evening. We will be serving cookies and cider to help everyone get into the spirit of the holiday season.
