I'd go for that Bob.......through Fort Mason Tunnel would be a good touch with the F line.
I love it, Thanks for the video, Andrew, and for the comments, J.B. Who knows, maybe the F-Line will get
extended through the Fort Mason Tunnel and recapture a little bit of the Belt Line experience.
Thanks for the old look at the streetcars in front of the Ferry Building and the Belt line steam. I was lucky enough to have met and known an old brakeman off of the Belt Line in SF. He had lots of stories from the busy switching line along the Embarcadero, and told of the military and troop trains into and out of the Presidio. He told me that the Belt had three switching jobs that ran 8 to 12 hour shifts...practically around the clock, back during WWII and thereafter. He passed away about ten years ago, and said that he had enjoyed his work very much, and that the Belt was like a big family of friends who were railroaders.
