F Castro

Jones St x Beach St, San Francisco

The city began establishing it’s historic streetcar service in the 1980s, with service finally reaching Fisherman’s Wharf in 2000...old trams were brought in from around the USA, and also from Europe...this one had originally jangled along the streets of Milan
To clarify it’s signage, this tram runs on the ‘F’ line, and goes to the Castro area

Old streetcar cuts a fine figure as it leans into its first turn of the route - a perfect way to see the sights in SF - nice!
