Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Will it be possible to extend the line northwards after this ?

There's not really where northward to go, this is downtown SF ... three short blocks and your at the Embarcadero and the piers.

There is the notional possibility to head east in a tunnel under the bay to Oakland, if they dug a new transbay tunnel. Locals from SF on the CA HSR blog seem to think this is not a politic issue to raise at this point in time.

The possibility exists of a people mover to connect underground to the BART stations from the TBT (1/4 mile, a block away) ... its penciled into the designs, but it seems as if without funding.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
