I spent all morning running errands downtown, so I took an F-line to Safeway on the way back. While awaiting the N at Church and Duboce, some of the preliminary work for this weekend’s Construction Marathon was going on.
First, there was a 1 car N that sped by inbound, PACKED full of people. But next was an actual 3 car N, also going inbound right behind it (but not taking passengers).
This is a rather rare sighting, in fact in my entire time in San Francisco I can’t recall ever seeing one (or if I did, those brain cells pushed the memory out to remember some Battlestar Galactica trivia). From what I’ve been told, 3 car N’s (or any LRV line) were supposed to be more common during rush hour, etc. but they had trouble staying together, etc.
I have some notes about this from the article last year, but I’ll be damned if I can find them. Hint: don’t reorganize your filing system in such a way that everything is where it’s supposed to be, and yet you still can’t find anything quickly!
Also, this tweet about Snowpocalypse SF 2011 seems to be quite popular arount Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr…
