Key System Transit Company President, Alfred J. Lundberg, was a member of the development board of the President's Conference Committee and in May 1937 advance royalties were paid on 180 PCC cars by Key's parent company, the Railway Equipment & Realty Co. Twenty sets of PCC electrical equipment were ordered from Westinghouse. The PCC cars were intended for heavy Oakland-Berkeley routes such as Telegraph Ave. and Broadway-College. The St.Louis Car Co. job 1613 is vacant and may have been assigned to Key System order. However, in March 1939, the Railway Equipment & Realty Co. cancelled a proposed appropriation of about $280,000 to purchase 20 PCC cars for use on one line as a test. Actually, the Key System applied its new orange and silver paint scheme to East Bay cars only in 1942, but if new PCC cars were delivered in 1939,they could have the new livery from the beginning to match the Bridge Unit cars.
