Father of the Expo Express Dies



    VANCOUVER, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - Bernard Barham, engineer in charge of
installation and operation of North America's first automated rapid transit
system, the Expo Express, died Feb 17 following a stroke. The
computer-controlled Expo Express, installed for the world's fair in Montreal
(Expo 67), was a novel undertaking in 1967 and, like the fair it serviced,
constructed in record time. It carried 44 million passengers from April-Oct,
1967.
