Magic Carpet Ride -- August 16, 2014

Car 1010, built for Muni in 1948 by the Saint Louis Car Company, is painted in Muni's pre-World War II Blue and Gold colors.  This is a tribute to Muni's first modern streetcars, called the Magic Carpets because they gave such a smooth ride.  The 1939 Magic Carpets were not considered true PCCs because they used different control systems and trucks, but they were nice cars.  The post-war 1010 and its companions are considered Muni's first true PCCs.
