Vent'Otto -- August 14, 2013

Car 1818 belongs to the Vent'Otto class of trams from Milan, Italy.  They have proved to be work horses for the San Francisco Municipal Railway's F-Line.  Here we see the Peter Witt car turning from Don Chee Way onto the Embarcadero.  1818 is in the green livery worn by Milan cars until the early 1970s.  When I visited in 1977, most of the trams were orange, but some were still green.  I took the photo on 07-May-2013. "Vent'Otto" means 28, the year the class debuted in Milan.  The plural is "Vent'Otti."
