Welcome to PCCSTREETCAR.COM
This website features videos with an emphasis on PCC streetcars, plus some Boeing LRV clips, in San Francisco, CA. The timeframe is from 1980 through 1983, when the first Historic Streetcar Festival was held. The Festivals became an annual event, eventually morphing into the Muni "F" Line, running between Castro & Market to the Transbay Terminal. In 2001, it was extended to Fisherman's Wharf.
Detailed information on all the streetcars featured in these video clips can be found here. Also, this site is the home of the Market Street Railway, which supports the F Line, as well as having a wealth of information on Muni streetcar operations over the years.
We hope you enjoy browsing through these clips, and perhaps reliving experiences from that era.
Before going on to the SF Muni, here's a look at Boston's Arborway line, circa 1983. The only stretch of street operation remaining in Boston at that time.
In 1982, some action at Market and Duboce.
1980, PCC 1038 enters West Portal. One of the few 1000 series to be painted
in this paint scheme
1980, heavy action at Saint Francis Circle, PCC's and LRV's mixing it up.
Followed by some earlier black and white footage of 1040 on the J Line.
ex-Philadlephia (PTC) #2121, Muni #1054, 2001 early operation on the
extended F Line at Fisherman's Wharf. This car suffered an accident in 2003
and was taken out of service.
