It’s great to have your own private streetcar. It’s even better when there’s entertainment or the opportunity to learn on the trip. We offer all these things in two excursions open to the public in October. Click here to get the complete scoop and sign up.
Market Street Railway is hosting another of its popular “Night Train” excursions. Come ride Muni’s Australian import, tram No. 496, along the historic F-line from the Castro to Fisherman’s Wharf and back. While riding, you’ll be able to enjoy beer and wine that will be available (your first is free) as well as the sounds of a live band. The excursion is on Friday, October 16, 7-9pm and boards at the F-line terminal at 17th and Castro Streets.
The next day, Saturday, October 17, 1:30-3:30pm, we have a different kind of excursion, on-board fabulous open-top Blackpool “Boat Tram” No. 228 (an enclosed car will substitute if it rains). Join tour guides Harlan Hirschfeld from City Guides and Paul Lucas from Market Street Railway for their informative ride along the F-line where you will learn interesting historical facts about famous Fisherman’s Wharf, traditional North Beach, the scenic Embarcadero, colorful Ferry Plaza, the busy financial district, world famous Powell & Market, classic Civic Center, imposing Mint Hill and the lively Castro.
