Come aboard for a private ‘charter tour’ of San Francisco’s busy trolley lines served by trolley poles! Volume 1 is a rock-steady “motorman’s view” on the following lines: F-Market, J-Church, L-Taraval, and M-Ocean View, plus some tracks not used in regular service! See historic cars Nos. 1 and 1010, and numerous other PCC cars.
Volume 2 features 25 operating historic cars, including such favorites as the No. 1 Holman 1912 car, No. 130 “Iron Monster”, No. 228 “boat car” from Blackpool, the No. 496 Melbourne car, the No. 952 New Orleans car, and the No. 1811 Milan Tram, beautifully re-painted into the original yellow and white livery. Additionally, all currently operating PCC cars are shown in the program, as well as one wrecked PPC car in storage.
We ride down the Embarcadero in No. 952, and also ride a charter trip on-board car No. 1015 over the K-Ingleside, L-Taraval, M-Ocean View lines and portions of the J-Church line, and take a fast ride through the Sunset Tunnel on the N-Judah line. Both volumes feature limited narration with locations shown by on-screen titles.
