Inside San Francisco's Vintage Streetcar Boneyard

The San Francisco Railway Marin Division Yard is home to San Francisco's derelict streetcar storage facility - a kind of purgatory for old streetcars as they await either restoration or piecemeal destruction as parts-donors for the active streetcars in Muni's thriving vintage streetcar fleet.

Most of the old streetcars here are streamlined PCCs built roughly between 1940 and 1952. Some survive as spooky time capsules of the day when they were removed from service.
