Thanks for the memories jb. About ten years ago when I was living in San Francisco in the Parkside I would take the long way when I was going downtown. Instead of walking two blocks to Taravel and taking the L car, I would walk over to Sloat, (about three blocks), take the bus up to West Portal, then take the M or K car to the Geneva car barn, then the J car downtown. For an even more special ride, at Market I would transfer to one of the surface streetcars. It was a great trip, especcially the J car on its own right of way.
