¶ Born on December 8, 1920 in San Francisco, Francis A. Guido became interested in railroading as a child when an uncle gave
him a Lionel train set. In 1937, he went on a West Coast railfan trip with Jack Gibson, which inspired them, along with John
Carrick and Bill Darrough, to organize the Northern California Railroad Club.¶
