Key Trains on Bay Bridge (film #41 on Shaping San Francisco). [Category: Public Service]

Clip from a documentary about the San Francisco commuter trains of the Key System, showing a number of different trains from different time periods, and lamenting the loss of this cheap, efficient form of mass transit. The scene of the train going through its own special portion of the Bay Bridge is pretty cool. This is historically valuable footage––too bad they didn’t post the complete documentary.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
