Loop at Geneva Barn

The M-Ocean View discharges passengers at its Balboa Park terminal a block or so (and across two busy streets) from the other two light rail lines and the BART station.  Cars then execute a loop without passengers, through the property of Geneva Barn then onto Geneva Ave. and then back on San Jose Ave. to position themselves at the first stop inbound. 

Interestingly enough, although trolley storage and servicing in this vicinity go back to before the 1906 earthquake and fire, none of the three lines that end in this area came this far out until well into the BART era. 

The early facilities were owned by Muni's older competitor, Market Street Railway.
