Harold Geissenheimer and Art Clokey, RIP -- January 9, 2010

Harold Geissenheimer, former Muni General Manager, has died. He was a railfan, and his support helped to make the Trolley Festivals a success in the 1980s, which led to the current F line. Muni Iron Monster 178 was borrowed from the Western Railway Museum at Rio Vista Junction for the festival. I took the photo of 178 and Key System 271 in October, 2009.

Art Clokey, creator of Gumby, and an all-around cool guy, also died.
