From Palo Alto Wiki
Harrison's various memories were printed during the Palo Alto Centennial in 1994.
- "When I was a really little kid, I remember coming down to the corner of Homer and Alma with my father to watch the white-faced Pacific steam engines with the steam shooting up. It was really dramatic.
- "They had green trees coming down both sides of Alma, and the train was all black with a white face--the face being where the light was, in front of the boiler. And I remember the whistle. No matter where you were in Palo Alto, you could hear the whistle from the steam engine, which is a very different sound from a diesel."
