#0325 – San Francisco Municipal Railway

Bus 0325 was part of a group of White model 798s acquired by the San Francisco Municipal Railway in 1948. White built more than 3,200 model 798 buses from 1940 to 1948; the Muni 798 fleet of 798’s totaled 370, one of the largest.

In 1960 0325 was sold to an equipment broker. Several years later, 7 other SF Muni Whites were moved to Clear Lake, CA,  where they remained until the PBM acquired all 8 of them in 2006.

0325 was considered the best of the lot and was chosen as the bus the PBM intends to restore.
