MUNI Histroic Streetcars

Welcome to the MUNI Historic Streetcars gallery. As of October 2006, MUNI operated an active in service fleet of about 30 historic streetcars and had a fleet of about 45 inoperable historic streetcars. Most of the inoperable fleet is awaiting restoration or rebuild. The fleet consists of many St. Louis Car Co. PCC's, a fleet of Peter Witt "Milan" trams and various antique streetcars (odds and ends). The operation of active streetcars and restoration of inactive ones is made possible by the joint effort between SF MUNI and Market Street Railway. These efforts to say the least, are impressive and truly very unique. These streetcars essentially provide a public ally accessible running museum of streetcar history in North America and Europe.

About two thirds of the active fleet is assigned to run on the SF MUNI F-Line on a regular basis. The F-Line's rolling stock provides a flashback to the past while its routing provides practical public transit service. The F-Line operates exclusively historic streetcars consisting of primarily restored St. Louis Car Co. PCC's and Peter Witt "Milan" trams (August 2006). The antique streetcars (odds and ends) make occasional appearances on the F-Line.

Many of the historic streetcars that MUNI currently owns never did operate in San Francisco till they were brought into the historic fleet in San Francisco. As a result, there is no standard paint scheme for the historic fleet, rather the paint schemes that are on the various cars either represent the city that the streetcar originally came from or in the case of most PCC streetcars, represents a city that use to operate the famous PCC streetcars. Most if not all of the historic fleet is capable of running on any MUNI Metro tracks, except for the Market Street "Subway".

The Market Street Railway (in conjunction with SF MUNI) provides extensive information on their operations. This information can be found on the Market Street Railway homepage. Also, there are many streetcars that are not shown in the below photos. If you are interested in learning more about the fleet please click here.
