BARTstalgia

September 1, 2010

Sigh. Eric Fischer brings us BARTstalgia (or whatever the word is for the transit path not taken):

Northbound BART train in Marin County leaving Sausalito (February, 1961)

BART passengers on platform (September 1960) (aka “Mad Men on a train”)

BART passengers on train (September 1960) (Hey, triplets on a train!)

And can ever forget the view from BART over the GGB?

Just call YUkon 2-9838 to express your support for BART to Marin County:

    Luggage racks: awesome. Like a real train!

    They’re designing the next generation of train cars now, aren’t they? Maybe we can get luggage racks on those.

    I know BART was talking about new cars with 3 doors, and more room for bikes.

    Some images are on BART’s posterous.com site. No sign of overhead luggage, but plenty of room on the floor.

    The GG is built for the 2nd level. You never know what might happen someday… if nothing else, what about a bike/pedestrian only 2nd level? How groovy would that be?
