CalTrain 7th Street Curve?
Author: RRBaron

It has been a long time since I shot trains at San Francisco's famous CalTrain 7th Street curve. On Google maps it looks like the classic curve with The City's skyline in the back ground is fenced-off. I will be in SF on 6/21 and would like to shoot the "Fleet" in the late afternoon. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

Maybe a step ladder, or standing on your vehicle, or photos with a drone would produce a decent photo?

The homeless can't stay off the tracks

Streets like that are usually lined with RV's with fully employed folks living in them.

Not all of them are foamers either.

#134 with 3029.  I remember these days well.  Probably shot in the 60's.  I haven't been in the City since I left Caltrain in 2004.  Definitely "all crap now".

I've heard it attributed to George Carlin or Mao.

Caltrain, not CalTrain.

I'm getting to this a little late but there are several holes in the fence--as of this February which was last time I got out there. They are about 4-5 feet off the ground.

Used to be a nice k-rail in the perfect spot but that was removed in the last couple years.
