Muni craftworkers pose in front of their handiwork, restored car No. 162, at Geneva Division on May 7, 2008. They were honored at a lunch sponsored by Muni and Market Street Railway, and attended by Muni Executive Director Nat Ford and MTA Board member Cam Beach, along with other Muni officials, MSR President Rick Laubscher, and Directors Steve Ferrario and George Pleasant. The restoration process was lengthy, given other demands faced by the crew, most of whom focus their attention on LRV work. However, when the opportunity arose to make the car a centerpiece of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) rail conference in San Francisco in early June, work rapidly accelerated with world-class results.
