A Pacific Electric Railway Red Car Trolley on the Streets of San Francisco

San Francisco’s MUNI has it’s very own Pacific Electric Railway Red Car, #1061. The Red Car system of Los Angeles County died out, as detailed in the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, so the Market Street Railway decided to re-use the red-and-orange paint scheme as an homage. 

This particular PCC railcar was never in L.A. It spent most of its life in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The real El Lay vehicles were double ended – this one has a front and a rear.

No matter, people love it anyway. Look for it on Market Street’s F-Line.
