San Francisco Muni Metro: a dynamic map: Piers Connor of the Railway Technical Web Pages describes thus - "It is a diagram of the tunnel section of the light rail system under Market Street between Embarcadero and the station beyond Van Ness. The initials refer to the platforms: "VNR" is Van Ness Right platform. The letters above the white blocks are the route letters of the LRVs. Some split so there are two different letters for one train."
