Operational SEPTA PCC Trolleys

Below is a list of "active" PCC's that are still on SEPTA rails.

The number of carcasses has diminished over the years with many sold to San Franciso's MUNI, New Orleans, Colorado Springs, and private collectors or museums.

There are about thirty (30) other PCC's at various SEPTA properties in various states of repair/disrepair. Included are items at Germantown, Midvale (where most excess cars and buses are now stored), and Elmwood.

Any changes or updates are appreciated. Please send them to Charles Anderson.
