BART To The Future
Oh man. Eric Fisher bums us out by scanning this 1961 GE ad of what BART could have been.
Note the above-ground tracks in Berkeley. And holy lots of white people on that train. Sex Pigeon, if your telepathy trucker hat has an alternate history setting, what are they thinking?
In all honesty we got a pretty good deal of this, though BART along Geary/Broadway and on the Golden Gate Bridge would have been a pretty epic ride. (And a crosstown BART down Divisidero-Castro-Noe-30th Street-SFO would work for me too. Just don’t turn off that tunneling machine, Gavin.)
Makes you wonder what the bullet train to LA will actually look like 50 years from now. Some space-blogger will be all, “Ha ha, look at this Burrito Justice idiot who said the train would go just 250 miles an hour when in fact it arrives in San Francisco BEFORE IT ACTUALLY LEAVES LA!”
