Learn How the F-line Started, At Our Museum

Thirty years ago this week, the first San Francisco Historic Trolley Festival kicked off, with then-Mayor Dianne Feinstein personally piloting historic Muni Car No. 1 from 17th Street and Market to East Bay Terminal. The festival was so successful, the mayor asked that it be repeated…and the F-line rapidly progressed from a dream to full-time reality.

We recount that seminal event in a new exhibit at our San Francisco Railway Museum. And now there’s more opportunity to see it, because we’ve instituted “Summer Hours”, opening on Mondays from 10-6, just like the other six days of the week. We’ll be open daily now through September (though we’ll be closed July 4). Grab an F-line car and get off at Steuart Street to take it all in. And don’t forget, Saturdays are the wonderful Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building.
