Charter Service on the N-Judah! HELL YES!
Over the weekend our friends at the Market Street Railway noted on their blog that a ban on chartered historic streetcars on the N Judah line may come to an end. It seems that some tests were done at night and several of the old cars can successfully navigate past the boarding platforms after all.
The ban on any historic trains west of Arguello came about when a wider car hit one of the boarding platforms. However, after last week's test, there's some hope that at least some of these cars could make their way out to Ocean Beach.
This is not unprecedented, and there's plenty of photographs of old cars making the trip. However, I can safely assure you, the Loyal Readers, that if in fact they restore this to Ocean Beach, I am SO going to organize a charter trip, hopefully on the "boat tram" on a sunny day.
