Fast Electric Trains -- June 13, 2014

This ad, from the 30-September-1913 San Francisco Call, gives the schedule of the interurban Oakland, Antioch and Eastern Railroad, which was a predecessor of the Sacramento Northern.  Passengers would ride Key System ferries from San Francisco and board Oakland, Antioch and Eastern on the Key Pier.  The trains would follow Key tracks to 40th and San Pablo.  Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.

Here is another Oakland, Antioch and Eastern ad:
