former St. Louis PCC's meet at the old West Portal. The
cars are gone and the entire area has been drastically
changed with the rebuilding of the trolley line to LRT
|Three former St. Louis cars on Ocean Blvd. Notice the private right of way in the median of the busy street. This was a great place to board a trolley and go downtown. Taken April, 1970.||It's the one hand cable turnaround maneuver. Taken in near Fisherman's Wharf. this is the Taylor line near the Bay.||Yes,
it is kind of tourist oriented but this is from the top of
Russian Hill looking down towards Alcatraz and the Bay.
|The harbor end of the Hyde line showing car 521 on the turntable. The Golden Gate Bridge is in the background.||Side view of ex-St. Louis 1139 on Ocean Blvd. in the modified Muni paint scheme. The sky is beautiful. No wonder people lose their hearts in San Francisco!||Another classic hill shot with car 513 lumbering up one of the hills overlooking the Bay. Sigh! 1971/April.|
|Ex Birmingham, Alabama Pullman PCC car at the intersection of King and Queen in Toronto, October, 1967||
Ex Louisville, ex-Cleveland St. Louis PCC car at Queen near the trolley barn and King crossing on a misty October, 1967 day. Couplers were added when the car was moved to Toronto.
|Ex Cleveland Pullman built PCC car crosses Queen on the King line. These cars ran a relatively short time in Cleveland before being sold to Toronto.|
|Another ex-Cleveland Pullman, this time in Queen ready to cross King on this cloudy and misty October, 1967 day in Toronto.||A St. Louis built PCC car built originally for Toronto heads northbound on King as it crosses the busy King-Queen intersection.||Another St. Louis built PCC car for Toronto making a turn on a pull-out from the barn to busy St. Clair. October, 1967.|
|The oily exhaust from that Plymouth can't obscure the two St. Louis built PCC cars on Queen as they cross King heading west.||It's getting dark already in downtown Toronto as a westbound King PCC ex-Cleveland car is seen. Notice the flags in the background.||The
scenic part of St. Clair on the northern part of Toronto as
one PCC gets ready to pass another one in this October, 1967
|Another shot of the pull-out approaching the St. Clair line in Toronto. What a great system!||St. Louis built single unit 110 comes into the Windermere station in East Cleveland in this 1959 shot. The cars were similar to those on the CTA property. Like the 6000 series, these cars have long since been retired.||Another single unit St. Louis car at the shops of the Cleveland Transit System (CTS) at Windermere in 1959.|
|Pullman (1948) built PCC on the Shaker Hts. route at 55th station. The cars used the center low level platform in this 1959 shot despite the fat that they were built with a door on the left side of the body.||Pullman built 86 waits for me to get aboard while next to it at the Van Aken yards is former Minneapolis TCRT St. Louis PCC. This was one of five cars that never received couplers for MU service.||In 1959 a few former Cleveland Peter Witt cars were still on the property seen at Van Aken next to a former TCRT car with couplers and a Pullman PCC still in the original colors. Nothing seen here remains in 2001.|
