Bay Bridge Beyond

The multiple suspension spans of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge present a handsome background for this stretch of the line between the Folsom and Brannan stations, first two stops after leaving the subway. 

For nearly three much earlier decades, ending in the late 1950s, electric rail transit crossed the water on the lower level of this graceful bridge.  At one time these trains could take the traveler a hundred or more miles to the northeast, and also provided more local service to Oakland, Berkeley and other communities -- areas now served by BART.
