Description

HTML is disabled for this item description.Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
PCC SF 1101 (yellow panel in pictures (1 & 2) is a hallmark PCC Car, first of postwar marque as #1700 in St Louis Missouri.    After 1936-1945 production, with bugs worked out, the St Louis 1700's were competitive downtown transport and remained so well into the 1970's in San Francisco.  SF had access to cheap electricity from their O'Shaughnessy Reservoir Hydropower, and the PCC cars were kept until the 1980-1990 SF trolley hiatus years, when popular demand encouraged track rebuild & F line PCC service rebirth along Embarcadero, & several miles on Market Street.

SF 1101 was auctioned off in 1994 along with 3 dozen other PCC Cars to make room for PCC cars coming through the Brookville rebuilding program, a replacement fleet of PCC cars from Philadelphia and Newark.    We can supply Westinghouse M.U. couplings (picture 3) seen on p.748 1912 LOCOMOTIVE DICTIONARY, to enable coupled PCC operations on your Museum or downtown Vintage Streetcar segment.   These M.U. couplers were used on Toronto (picture 4), Johnstown, and Chicago PCC.to mention examples.   Operating examples of the StL 1700 fleet are now exceedingly rare.    

Shipped on lowboy, loaded on rails fastened to lowboy trailer.    Dimensions within height and width limits allow transport without special permits or pilot cars.     We prefer Taylor Heavy Haul in Roseville CA for reliable shipping of PCC Cars.We can help with loading ramp to keep costs down without cranes.
