San Francisco Heritage Streetcars
San Francisco on the west coast of America has an impressive heritage streetcar service.   Called the F-Line, the route stretches for six miles and is served by around 30 vintage trams.   The trams are mainly former San Francisco streetcars dating from the 1940's painted in the colours of USA cities that operated them.   Also present are ten trams originating from Milan painted in the famous orange livery of that city, and some trams from around the world such as Melbourne and Blackpool.
