CERA puts on regular programs and other, special events from time to time. Programs on aspects of electric railroads of yesterday and today typically occur monthly, with a few exceptions.
Mark Walbrun will present a program on the former Texas Electric 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.
Admission is free for current CERA members. There will be a $5.00 Admission charge for non-members.

Newscast/Electric Rail Highlights: Sometimes our programs have a special section where member contributions are showcased—it's a bit like a visual "show & tell" for railfans. If you have electric railway images or announcements, we encourage you to contribute!
