F-market line historical tram car 1010 - san francisco

A historical F-Market line streetcar is used as a test train on the newly installed diamond crossing track section.­

This car is painted in tribute to the 'Magic Carpets', as San Francisco's first five modern-design streetcars, introduced in the 1940s, were known.­

The 1010 was built in 1948 and fully restored for the opening of the F-line in 1995.­ For more info about this streetcar, go to www.­streetcar.­org/­streetcars/­1010/­.

Photos of railroad workers replacing a Muni light rail track section on Duboce street, Church street and Market street (San Francisco).­

Each section of track work, such as replacement of the double diamond crossing structure at Church st and Market st, takes 2 or 3 days with crews working 24h during week-ends.­

The work was realized by local contractor NTK Construction.

I must thank NTK management and crew for letting me shoot those amazing photos on their construction site.­
