Muni's Heritage Weekend Showcases 'Boat Tram'

Guests at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) recent fifth annual Muni Heritage Weekend celebration rode free on Streetcar No. 228, an open-air “boat tram” from Blackpool, England, built in 1934. SFMTA, operator of the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni), and its historic preservation partner, Market Street Railway, restored vintage buses, trolleybuses and five historic streetcars to service for the event. The celebration also included historical photos displayed on buses and special exhibits and memorabilia at the San Francisco Railway Museum. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Muni’s first trolley coach line.
