07-02-07 PHOTOS: RSA Conference 2007

Much like last year, the 2007 RSA conference was held in San Francisco and in case you hadn't noticed a theme from my other photo posts I attended this conference and went around riding rail transit in the old Homeless capitol of the nation. So far I have covered the Caltran Caltrain and cable cars so this post will cover everything else, namely the MUNI streetcar system and baRT.

This time around I rode the M, K, L and J lines and also took the baRT out to MacArthur in Oakland. Unfortunately this was the rainy season and because the conference went from 8-4 I consistently was shooting in low light or darkness. One interesting thing I did see was the original L-Line terminal which still has some of the original Belgian block footing. I also took a nighttime ride out on the F line to Castro and back.

You can see the whole set of pix at

And of course a representative sample for those who are too lazy to click.

F Market former Philly PCC car lays over at Castro...with a follower PCC ruining my shot with his glare.

An F Market Milan Peter Witt car #1895 passes through the Balboa Park terminal on its way to the Geneva carbarn while modern LRV's look on.

The old L-Traval terminal terminal at the Pacific ocean. You can see the original track Belgian block footing with girder rail.  This is the oldest section of track remaining on the MUNI system.

 L-cars lead by Breda LRV #1410B making the turn towards the Zoo just short of the original terminal on Travel St.

Lots of LRV action at Balboa Park.

Traffic and trolley wire at the corner of Church and Market.

A baRT A-car at the MacArthur station...with another ironic sign.

Up close and personal with 'A' car #1219.

The baRT ba sign with Bay Area traffic behind.

Why do Californians make fun of New Jersey if this is what their beaches look like this?
