This picture from the Dallas Observer shows Bob LaPrelle,
CEO of the Museum of the American Railroad, on the left,
and William J Brotherton, general counsel for the Museum,
on the right. LaPrelle and Brotherton were in the 68th

request for an emergency order. The City of Dallas sued
the Museum for trespass and nuisance after the Museum
announced it was moving to Frisco, Texas from Fair Park
in Dallas, where it had been located for almost 50 years.
The lawsuit has been settled and the Museum has already
moved a historic switch tower to the new 14 acre location
in Frisco, with the rest of the rolling stock and one
of Dallas' first railroad depots soon to follow. For
