The evening’s program will be South Bay Vignettes by Central Coast Webmaster Ken Rattenne.

Take a trip in the Waback Machine to the South Bay Area during the 1970s and 1980s. This is what railroading was like before the megamergers of of the 1990s. The Amtrak steam-heated era, SP freight and passenger operations, WP and the early years of the UP operations in the South Bay are all covered. South Bay Vignettes was Ken’s first Winterail production, originally presented in 1984. This updated digital version was created in 2017 and presented at the Winterail 40th Anniversary production in Corvallis, Oregon, in March of 2018. Ken Rattenne has been documenting the South Bay railroad scene since 1972 and has traveled across the U.S. in pursuit of his avocation. His photos and articles have been published in most of the railfan magazines, past and present, including many in our own Ferroequinologist.
