Trolley Tours are back in 2015! We’ve scheduled our first three, and will be announcing more in the months to come.
These private charters, arranged by Market Street Railway, give you the chance to ride vintage streetcars not often seen in regular service and along streetcar routes that the vintage cars only follow for events like these.
All the details are here, if you just want to cut to the chase.
Our first excursion, on April 12, brings out Muni’s European PCC, the stylish Belgian adaptation of the U.S. streetcar design seen on the F-line. With exterior livery touting Zurich, San Francisco’s sister city, but interior signs in French and Flemish heralding the city where it actually ran, Brussels, it’s a rolling example of streetcar schizophrenia. It will run from our San Francisco Railway Museum out the F and J lines to Balboa Park and back.
Our second Trolley Tour is especially for grandparents and grandchildren, on the delightful 1934 boat tram from Blackpool, England. What better way to delight the little ones than an open air ride along the waterfront, with a guided tour included.
Then, on April 26, we’ll have our first “Night Train” event, an evening excursion on beautifully restored 1912 Car No. 1, with beverages and a live band!
