Cable Cars

There are three lines Powell-Hyde, Powell-Mason and the California St line. The first to lines are generally very busy with tourist and the California St line is the most quiet line. The cable cars have a unique and traditional way of operating, the Cable Car Museum shares a full insight on the history of the cars and also it is the powerhouse and heart of the cable car system. Running solely on gripping and braking mechanisms the cars are hand powered, when reaching the end of the track, the car runs onto a turntable to be hand-turned by gripman and conductor.
