"Big Ten" PCC 1008, which became a work car in the late 1970s, was sent to Brookville Equipment Co. in 2011 for restoration and returned in 2012.

PHOTOS TAKEN IN 1976:

PCC 1008 enters the west portal of the Sunset Tunnel on October 4, 1976. The roof sports a pantograph for testing overhead not accessible by trolley pole. Evidence of single ending from the 1950s is visible: one side has doors sealed, the wings livery is only on one end, and the leading end shows white lights (although the curbside light is replaced with a panel). The car appears to be in service, because the headsign reads N Judah to East Bay Terminal. Slide by D.V. Jewell in my collection; photo added 05/29/12.

PHOTOS TAKEN IN 1980:

PCC 1008 at First and Mission Sts. on April 13, 1980. The car has not yet received its Muni Repair Car modification of the Landor livery. Scan of a slide in my collection added 08/28/12.
