Stephen Schwarzwald

Stephen was one of the 7 founding members of the Pacific Bus Museum, in 1989, and quite possibly the primary force that made it actually happen.

In 1992, Stephen worked for George Powell who was the Superintendent of Maintenance for SCRTD, which later became the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Previous to that, Stephen Schwarzwald was the Director and then Vice President of the West Coast Motor Coach Museum, which was the predecessor to the PBM.

The July 1987 WCMCM Coach Roster showed that Stephen owned Antelope Valley Bus #126 before PBM owned it.
