Look back in time to Muni from after World War II to the 1980s. See the days when the “Iron Monsters” ruled Market Street and watch the Muni PCC cars of long ago when they were run as double-ended cars and the newer single-ended fleet as it expanded and replaced the Iron Monsters by the late 1950s. See disappeared lines like the B, C, F, and H, along with the J, K, L, M, and N.
See the long-forgotten Market Street Railway streetcars after the Muni took over those lines after WWII. Learn the Muni’s history over the years up to the BART subway project and more! See firsthand the effects of the Market Street Subway construction and all the changes to the West Portal Tunnel, the Phelan Loop of earlier times and the Transbay Transit Terminal.
See cable cars of the California Street Cable Railway Company as well as 40 years of Muni action!
