Feb. 16, 2013 marked the triumphant return of the Sweetheart Special, an event that the museum started back in 1989.The reprise event was a day-trip along our beautiful coastline aboard the magnificent Vista Dome car, Silver Splendor. There were delicious boxed lunches to eat, along with Valentine's candy and even some healthy snacks. Narrative along the way was provided by a trio of museum guides -- Nancy Johnke, Museum Director Gary Coombs and, shown at left, Bern Verbit.
Also aboard ably serving as museum hosts were Raphaella Baholzer-Donati and Mayra Garcia.
We had a full car, with 46 passengers aboard, plus crew. A fun and memorable time was had by one and all.
