I just finished a story about ghost stations in San Francisco.

I was inspired after my little Forest Hill station thread, and then I found some really great photos and cool stories about the early wild years of SF transit plans, streetcars, and tunnels.…
So many thanks to @enf for help with research, and encouragement, and proof reading – and the massive/impressive SF archives he collected over the years.

Also thanks to @outsidelandz. This tweet/photo jumpstarted the whole project:
(If you ever wondered about the weird way J Church goes in between the houses, or about the abandoned tunnels on the side of Market Street, or about the footbridge in Dolores Park… this post might shed some light!)
(The invisible “reading UX” part that took a bunch of time, but I am really proud of: redoing all the maps so that they’re the same orientation [and scale if need be], making it easier for readers to arrive at the good sense of the spaces I’m talking about.)
