Note: In 2019, facing a serious space squeeze, Muni reduced the number of its stored PCC streetcars following an extensive evaluation process of their condition in which Market Street Railway participated by invitation. Those in the worst condition — lacking major components or in advanced states of body deterioration — were removed from the reserve fleet and disposed of, saving important parts for use in the retained cars. The following cars have now left Muni.

“Baby Ten” class: 1023, 1031, 1038.

“1100” class: 1106, 1108, 1125. Additionally, Car 1140 of this class, brought back to Muni many years ago by Market Street Railway, was donated to the National Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri, the city where it was both built and first operated.

Other PCCs (acquired by Muni but never ran in San Francisco): ex-SEPTA (Philadelphia) 2133; ex-Pittsburgh 4008, 4009.
