Iron Horse and Iron Men -- Joseph Carotenuti & Marilyn Darnell
When you ride or see a train or hear its whistle do you remember that progress is the result of personal dedication and commitment to the future by the people who created the railroad?

The railroad was (and is) a major accomplishment in American history.

In the late 1800s the Iron Horse was seen as THE symbol of progress. Two remarkable men, Chauncy Hatch Phillips and Robert Edgar Jack, were instrumental in bringing the railroad down the Central Coast and into San Luis Obispo. Our presenters will discuss how their vision, tenacity and sense of community motivated them to overcome the political and financial obstacles to making their vision a reality. Hear about the seemingly insurmountable obstacles and ultimate triumphs.

The RR Museum will open at 9:30 for those who want to wander around the Museum before the class starts at 10.

Joseph A. Carotenuti is the City Historian/Archivist for San Luis Obispo and frequent contributor to Journal Plus magazine. Longtime San Luis Obispo resident and historian, Marilyn Darnell's new book Anything but Dull - The Personal Letters of R.E. Jack provides an overview of the life of R. E. Jack .

Thursday, June 16 2016, 10:00am- 12:00pm   Railroad Museum, SLO
