Streetcars to the Presidio : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Is there any possibliity that streetcars will ever run to the Presidio? I know there's a railroad tunnel under Fort Mason and partly-buried RR tracks along the Marina Green. Seems like a perfect setup for getting those great old retro streetcars to run to the Presidio!

Not likely in my opinion, but it would have my support, nevertheless. Heck, why stop at the Presidio? Why not run it over to Marin County (hang the rails on the Golden Gate bridge or reengineer the lower deck that was retrofitted with cross bracing and use the that space) and extend the line on the old railroad right-of-way that runs through Marin and up to Sonoma County? It might not be considered light rail, but it's better than nothing and our society has a responsibility to build better public transportation.
