San Francisco Municipal Railway (1944-46)
Built 1990 by Muni shops
When it bought out Market Street Railway in 1944, Muni’s official colors for its streetcars and buses were blue with yellow trim. Muni painted two Powell cable cars into this scheme (today’s No. 3 and No. 10).

But the blue and gold (actually yellow) livery represents an important period in Muni history, and so is represented in the Powell Street cable car fleet by No. 16.
