Review of Municipal Railway Vintage Scrapbook San Francisco DVD

 4.8 of 5 (10)
Look back in time to the “Muni” after WWII to the 1980s. See the days when the “Iron Monsters” were the rule on 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. We bring the J, K, L, N & M lines from a long-lost era.

We bring examples of the long-forgotten Market Street Railway streetcars after the Muni took over those lines after WWII. Early examples of the A, B, K and L type streetcars abound in this presentation when they ruled Market Street and all the outbound lines.

Don't miss the old B, C, D, F and H lines and how Market Street looked generations ago. 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.
