TWIN COACH 570:

Twin Coach 570 was fitted with experimental traction batteries and repainted in the new GMC red and gold colors. The trolley (marked route 14 in the rear numeric sign) is laying over at 24th and Mission Sts. in June 1970. Poles are down, so I guess the batteries helped the coach make it to this unwired location. The sign on the rear talks about a future return of trolley coach routes 9, 12, and 14 to the Mission corridor; I assume it refers to BART construction on Mission. Mack 2548 is parked ahead of the 570. Candle Light Shop is still located at 3330 24th St. in July 2013. Alex's on the corner sells Can't Bust 'Em work clothes. A dog is in the street (ah, the carefree earlier days, lol). Scan comes from a slide in my collection. One photo added 07/01/13.
