Sneak Peek at a Special Streetcar
May 14, 2013
This image from a computer screen just popped up on our Facebook group (search for Market Street Railway and join!). It shows the last of the 16 PCC streetcars to be renovated by Brookville Equipment Company at its Pennsylvania facility, under a Muni contract. It’s sitting outside, and looks complete.
It’s a very special streetcar for our organization, in large part because of the tribute livery it wears.
Could this mean that this long-delayed streetcar is finally about to head home? We’ll run a a celebratory post when it gets here, documenting its amazing resurrection and explaining why it and its brothers are essential for permanent start up of the E-Embarcadero line.
