"Parking" at McDonald's on Pocket Road, where our two groups met

Part of the gang - it was a bit windy - Susan's in the plaid shirt
We took a ride on a 101 year old street car from Berkeley
If you're good you
can spot several CPCCers from the back

Ah yes, the doctor said smoking Lucky Strikes was GOOD for you
I remember this stuff, tasted pretty good too
Was a household name way back when - no CFLs on this streetcar
If you say so...
This is a "boat car" from Australia. I remember seeing it cruise Market
St. in San Fran in the 70's & 80's
Some not-so-pretty rolling stock housed here waiting for restoration
The Western Railway Museum is sited beside a very large wind farm - when built
out could power the city of Fresno!
Those arms are each ~100 feet long, and make one rotation ~every 5 seconds
