San Francisco Historic Streetcars.
The second most common type of streetcar in Muni’s historic fleet is an American classic with an Italian accent. This type of car is named for Cleveland street railway commissioner Peter Witt, who designed it for his Ohio city around 1915. Milan has the longest-serving Peter Witts in the world, building some 500 starting in 1928, some of which still operate today. In the 1970s, the Milan tram fleet was repainted a solid orange, the livery worn by the remainder of Muni’s Milan trams, including Nos. 1815, 1834 (used only for operator training), 1856, 1859, 1893, and 1895. The “Peter Witt” trams long ago stopped using conductors, but Milan, like Muni, has painted some of their orange trams back into their historic liveries.
