SFMRy 1003 was built by the St Louis car Company in 1939. It is the lone survivor of five cars, all different, that were acquired to test this new type of car in San Francisco. The car could be operated from both ends and it was set up for a two-man crew. When it was delivered new it was painted in the blue and gold paint scheme that celebrated the 1939 World’s Fair on Treasure Island. The car rode very smoothly and gained the nickname of “Magic Carpet”. The city’s two-man ordnance was repealed in 1954 and the car was converted to one-man operation. The hand operated Cineston controller made handling fares difficult as a one-man car and the fact that all operators had to be trained on this limited class of equipment that was used only on rush-hour tripper service caused MUNI to replace the Magic Carpets with four ex-St Louis public Service cars (1167-1170). This car was acquired by the Bay Area Electric Railroad Association in February 1959.
