Key System 1201

I painted this vintage trolley car at the Western Railway Museum, just outside of Rio Vista. It was originally part of the Key System, an interurban streetcar system that connected neighborhoods in the East Bay for many years, before the advent of AC Transit and BART. The museum volunteers have restored it to running condition, complete with a glorious orange paint job. With its rubber roof and wooden platform it's also used as a work vehicle for repairing the labyrinth of overhead electrical wiring at the museum.
