John, you're right. I dashed it off without proofing. The Muni never operated on the Land's End track and did not go to the Louie's terminal until the September, 1944, conversion. I apologize. The C cars never went beyond the 32nd and Clement terminal.

I also forgot to mention that I do remember the old green Sutro Division barn at 32nd and Clement now occupied by a derelict supermarket. One of my friends discovered an old controller handle in the lot following the demolition of the barn and gave it to me. It's one of my favorite possessions.
