Got a quick question - earlier tonight I was watching "Pal Joey" with Frank Sinatra. He hops off a train at the Oakland Mole, grabs a ferry, and arrives in San Francisco. There's a tiger-striped SP switcher sitting outside the ferry building in what would today be the median of Embarcadero. Was this just a studio shot somewhere or did they really run freight through downtown like this? Time was 1957.
