Another Tale of Geary Street

Clark Frazier.

If you’re a transit geek (you know who you are) who cannot get enough of the transit history of Geary Street, you’re in luck: the Market Street Railway has published an excellent piece that discusses both streetcar operations on Geary and the unfortunate demise of the B-Geary streetcar line. The post also includes some seriously sweet images (including the one at right) of cars at various points along the Geary route. And on a side note: I have not forgotten my promise to write one more post to close off the Geary series. Things are incredibly busy right now, which means that posting, in general, will be on the slow side; but that last promised section is in progress and will be posted sooner or later. In the meantime, visit the Market Street Railway blog to quench your thirst for material on Geary transit.

  1. This is great, any chance of lobbying MSR to reprint their histories on the demise of the F and H that they mentioned?

  2. Maybe so, but MSR has basically reprinted them online, where they will reach a wider audience.
