{sf} railway museum, for real

December 28, 2015

I was looking up random free things to do in San Francisco one afternoon and noticed that the city had its very own Railway Museum! At first I thought this was weird, but then realized that San Francisco really does have quite a variety of transportation modes, which probably does warrant its own museum. Especially since the museum was free, I decided to take full advantage of my monthly MUNI/BART pass and head on over to Downtown so that I could see this museum even if it was small. While San Francisco now has a variety of vehicles that run of various railways, this museum really focused on the trolleys. Who knew there was so much history to the trolleys and railways in this city! For sure I didn’t. My favorite part when visiting these types of museums, though, is perusing the different types of fare coins/tokens that have been used throughout the years. The changes in these tokens have always been so fascinating to me!

    it still baffles me that some people use the trolleys are their main mode of transportation!
