Interesting account of the electric railways that operated in the Bay Area.
Key System and Market St Railway were
covered in detail.

I would recomend it for those who are interested in the history of electric cars
in the area. Key System was a great asset for the Bay Area but was dismantled to keep auto interests happy. Later it had to be rebuilt at huge cost as BART.
