Muni Goes Topless! (Video)
|The Christmas lights are a nice touch, too...|
While its admirers have described its "nautical air," it resembles nothing so much as a gravy boat. Needless to say, it's a gem and a delight. And, today, it's patrolling Market Street on a rare foggy/drizzly day run. Normally the boat only comes out when it's sunny -- but, then, other Muni F-Line trolleys -- namely glorious No. 130 -- are banged up.
A number of commuters bemusedly stepped onto the open-topped train as it rolled down Upper Market, amazed that this ridiculous conveyance was serving as their ride to work on a groggy Tuesday. One tourist, apparently disbelieving that this was a regular train -- and griping that he wasn't told quickly enough how much a ticket cost -- stepped off at Market and Dolores and refused to get back on.
His loss, his loss.
