In 1980 SEPTA did a general overhaul on some of their all-electric PCCs that were built in 1947 and 1948. The cars were re-painted in SEPTAs red,white and blue paint scheme and were known as "GOH" cars. They ran until 1992. Many of them were sold to San Fransisco and now are running on the MUNI F line. Here are some shots of those cars.
