Hello Fred;
Yes that is an original "streetcar". The City has quite an extensive list of equipment. All are original, many are local to San Francisco
and many are from around the world and the run "The Streets of San Francisco" daily. They run in conjunction w our heritage Cable Cars.
I rode the above streetcar to see the USS Zumwalt

Here is my 35mm negative I digitize scanned and call "Back in 2001" on a rainy, windswept San Francisco day


This is a you tube, the streetcars in everyday action

All the Best______Joe

I like the style of that vehicle. Is it really old, old just 'old style'?

A visit to Tywyn for a ride behind Edward Thomas on the last day of the decade. This 0-4-2ST was built in 1921 by Kerr, Stuart & Company for use on the Corris Railway, and was purchased by the Talyllyn Railway in 1951 after its closure and named after the TRís former manager.

You should read my previous message better, after some maintenance earlier this year it is now in much better condition as this picture from this summer proves:

Thanks Kelly, there was a little sign in Chinese which might have covered the background, but since I can't read Mandarin it was of no avail to me. I had to travel a lot when I was still working, but only to the places where my employer had sites. So in China I've only been to Shanghai and in India only to Bangalore, from where I shot the following "memorial" locomotive. It's right in front of the San Engineering and Locomotive company on IPTL main road who is still building modern diesels today. It was right across from the hotel where I usually stayed but I only had time once to go out there and take some shots before it got dark. Usually my days were quite long while travelling

Great photos everyone! Love the Golden Hour light Matheieu! Nice night shot Pieter! You certainly have traveled the world! I wonder about the history of that locomotive.
Very colorful Christmas train Lee. Looks like the event attracted a lot of fans. Cucoo, its interesting that they put plexiglass (whatever that is) around the locomotive. Better than chain link fencing though, which is what they might do here. Heikki, a shame that that engine is out in the open rusting away! Like the balloon smokestack!

Kind regards,

Kelly

^ Yeah, I guess that's true, the roof probably helps a lot with keeping it in a nice condition.

On the other hand, the shelter obviously helps to preserve the engine in better shape. For example, this is what museum engine "Ruuhvelti" (Tk3 853) at Kouvola railway station looked few years ago:


I think it was only this year after several years of exposure for the elements of nature and less active maintenance that engine got once again some love and new paint etc. I think there was even a threat it would be removed from its familiar place next to the railway station as the city didn't seem to have enough money to maintain it, luckily some volunteers stepped in and now there has been some talk to build a (glass) shelter that should preserve it with far less maintenance.
