What dreams may come

Forward Thrust: they couldn't have thought of a better name?!

More accurately: what dreams there were. This here is a mock-up of the subway system proposed under 1968/1970’s Forward Thrust bond measures. Yep. That could have been the train system of today. It’s one of those painful civic moments that still chafe the public memory (try googling it, and just try and count the number of references as we move forward with various transit votes today).

The good news is that we’re building transit now. Sure, it would have been nice to have it, oh, thirty years ago, but what the hey, better late than never…
