AT NORTH PARK

RAILROAD FLICKERS

Carriso Gorge! The Zephers! Chihuahua al Pacifico! Come to the North Park Theatre on Wednesday, March 16, at 7:30pm. Movies featuring these attractions will be shown by the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum.

The main feature is "The Rainmaker", which was filmed in Carriso Gorge during the 1930's. It is a slapstick and promises fun for all.

Also featured is a flicker called the "Silver Streak". It is about the operation of the first, Burlington Zepher. This is the beginning of the diesel streamliners.

The building of the Chihuahua al Pacifico is the feature of another short film. This is Mexico's newest transcontinental railroad which crosses the mighty Sierra Madre.

All Aboard! The fare is $1.50 for those 14 and over, and 75 youngsters. Tickets may be obtained from PSRMA members or at the movie theatre on March 16, just before movie time.


BUT NOT PSRMA

ENGINE GOES TO MUSEUM

The Unidos de Yucatan Locmotive is museun bound. The locomotive that the PSRMA hoped to obtain from UdeY is to be placed in a Mexican museum.

So ends the project to obtain a locomotive from Mexico for an operating museum. Many thanks to those who pledged financial backing for this project.

Don't lose hope however. The museum also has other irons in the same locomotive fire. Several other locomotives are under the eye of our sluth. Terry Durkin. The future looks favorable.

BURLINGTON TO END STEAM RUNS

It's "Boo-Hoo" for steam enthusiasts since the Burlington announced it would retire two "Choo-Choos" August 1, last of its two iron horses which have been used to pull excursion trains for railroad buffs and Children.

The carrier said it cannot find repairmen who know how to repair steam locomotives. Burlington says it needs 14 workmen to keep the steam locomotives - a coal burner built in 1923 and an oil burner built in 1940 in repair.... (Trainmen News).
