San Francisco – Part 4

Day 4

On Day 4, I took “Powel – Mason” Cable car to head to the Colt Tower and Levi’s Square.

The cable car is a lot of manual Labor.
At a switch, one guy pull the lever while cable car is changing the track.

The driver (?) told me a lot about how cable car operates, and suggested me to stop by at the Cable Car Museum.

On my way back to Union Square, I hopped back on to a cable car, and went to the Cable Car Museum. it is a small building, and actual work shop / power house for the San Francisco Cable Cars.
it is a very entertaining, and fun place. it’s free, and can learn a lot about the history of cable cars, and it’s operation, and mechanics. worth while stop if you go to San Francisco.
