Boeing-Vertol Vehicles

When Muni light rail underwent its major transformation in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the then-existing fleet of PCC trolley cars gave way to the kind of vehicle pictured in this scene.  These LRVs were briefly and rather unsuccessfully manufactured by Boeing-Vertol, with similar units furnished both to San Francisco and Boston.  After a couple decades or so of service all San Francisco units were retired.  Boston saw its last units in regular service in 2007.

This run is about to negotiate the tight loop at Ocean Beach.
