Trains in the Outside Lands

As part of Shaping San Francisco's ongoing 25th anniversary celebration in 2023, long-time friends and collaborators at the Western Neighborhoods Project join us to explore the deep transit history of the west side of San Francisco. A lively evening featured the inestimable Emiliano Echeverria, whose knowledge of San Francisco's transportation history is unmatched. Emiliano drew from his remarkable DVD publications on the Steam Railroads of San Francisco and the history of United Railroads to reveal the transit-driven process of "conquering" the outside lands.
