    2. 2. What do model Railroads have to do with CyberInfrastructure? The previous image taken at Walt’s Barn in Griffith Park, Los Angeles Walt = Walt Disney Stewart has been a fan of Disney since “forever” (which was a long time ago) As Marine Corps brat, Stewart was born at Camp Pendleton Zip:92055 coastal San Diego north county – every other tour of duty was Pendleton Camp Pendleton night at Disneyland, when stationed there, and a visit on each duty change, along with “visit the relatives”.
    3. 3. Walt Disney (05Dec1901 – 15Dec1966) 11Nov2010 – niece Leigh Birthday And Flag Retreat daily ceremony, Main Street Disneyland (dlfreak on YouTube shared) Disney Family Museum, Presidio Park San Francisco (a record of Walt always pushing the Technology envelope) Cruise ships with children – Stewart 60 th birthday through Panama Canal (Disney first to include children in cruising, just like the parks) Walt’s Barn [CPRR] – Griffith Park – 1956 founding member of LA Live Steamers
