BART train car mockup (1964) We've seen the railroad-style "BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT" lettering along the bottom and the first iteration of the "ba" logo before. New to me, though, are the additional vertical "BARTD" logo on the cab, just in front of the horizontal stripes, replaced on the full-scale prototype by the car number, and the vertical dividers in the interior with images of what I think are a cable car, a suspension bridge, and San Francisco City Hall.

We were headed to Berkeley, eventually to the Lawrence Hall Of Science, where we went to play the Star Trek Computer game.
