Willie was William Rosenberg of Kew Gardens, NY. He was a fixture on fan trips in the fifties and sixties. What great enthusiasm he had! I recall first seeing him on fan trips over the disappearing rails of the old Baltimore Transit Co. --Mr. Rosenberg was particularly fond of traction, according to John Dziobko. What a treasure it would be to discover his photo collection someday! --Webmaster

Memories! Now 67, I was a 10-12 year-old kid on M.P.R.A. fantrips with my late father. He always pointed out "Willie from Brooklyn" as thee quintessential rail fan. Willie rode all our Philly-based fantrips, loaded down with cameras.
