Eskenazi, inspired by a recent Associated Press article on how much cable cars cost the city in accident-related damage awards, says that they cost the cities in other ways. He feels that the Municipal Transportation Agency, which is always low on funds, should not be forced to subsidize the cable cars, which are mostly used by visitors, the same way it subsidizes other bus and rail services which are mostly used by working San Franciscans.
He says "Maintaining cable cars for city tourists while struggling to provide core transit service is a bit like polishing the heirloom china for the guests while sending the kids to school with no shoes. But no amount of cold-hearted empirical analysis will sever city residents' emotional attachment to the cable cars.
It would also take a citywide election to scrap the cars. Perhaps the Municipal Transportation Agency should, too. There were some new exhibitors this year, including ThinkWalks. It was nice to meet with Joel Pomerantz in person. Don Holmgren and Mike Phipps pose in front of the world's largest cable car bell.

I would not second guess the men and women of the Cable Car Division, but I think it might have been better publicity to go and use the assembled cameras and microphones to make a statement about the current state of labor relations.
It was reported to be very popular. Powell Street car went in Smart Cards on Cable Cars - July Clipper, formerly known as FastTrack, is a smart card that allows users to store passes or money for various regional transit agencies.
When the San Francisco Municipal Railway introduced Clipper, training or warning appears to have been minimal.

The upgraded system will run directly from the top to the bottom. The work is scheduled to be complete by September, but people regard that date with skepticism.
I enjoyed learning more about San Francisco's Carville neighborhood. He gives a well-documented history of the growth of Carville from a single shack to a neighborhood with water, electric power, a school, and a firehouse.
He frames the story with his dream of buying a house in San Francisco. I also appreciated the way the author included Gelett Burgess and his writings about Carville. Order the book using the supporting website: Part of the line became a counterbalance.

Four passengers were injured. This curve was poorly redesigned when the system was rebuilt in The crew got off of the car to push. When it started rolling down the hill on Washington, the gripman jumped on the back platform and passed through the cabin. He found that the front cabin door was jammed and he could not get through. The car hit the curve into Powell too fast and derailed. Muni stated that the crew may have broken the rules by not keeping one person the car while it was out in the street.
He was a good guy and was always generous about sharing his knowledge. Val wrote a very good article about his memories of transit in San Francisco, "San Francisco: That Was the City That Was".
Explosion at California and Drumm - June Manhole covers flew through the air by the terminal of the California Street line, where I had been standing just the day before. Pacific Gas and Electric was trying to determine the cause.

Edinburgh -- Revenge of the Cable Trams - April An article in The Scotsman report that engineers preparing for Edinburgh's new tram system have been surprised to discover that many of the streets still contain the conduits from Edinburgh's cable tram system, which was electrified in Further studies will have to determine whether the conduits are strong enough to support the new trams.
The article made sure to mention that cable tram were invented by a Scot. Conductors point out that their primary task is to ensure the safety of riders and to work the rear brakes.
The cars and trackway have been renovated, and work should start soon on replacing the driving machinery and adding some safety devices that had not been included when the line was restored in The article stresses how the neighborhood has changed since the accident.
Cable Cars" - November KGO Channel 7 ran an "investigative" piece saying that Department of Transporation records indicate that cable cars have the highest accident rate of any type of Muni vehicle.
I posted a rebuttal on their blog: In comparing the accident rates of cable cars and other forms of transit in San Francisco, it is important to remember that cable cars operate in some of the most congested streets in the city. Cable car crews have suggested that the accident rate would be much better if the city put more effort into enforcing traffic and parking regulations on the streets where the cable cars operate.
Dear Friends and Merchants: Our annual Luncheon has become an event eagerly looked forward to by many seniors. For some, this may be their only opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with a hot meal and warm companionship. Through the cooperation and volunteer services of many of our own Cable Car Division personnel, the Luncheon has become a rousing success, bringing a much needed boost to these sometimes forgotten people, during what can often be a difficult and lonely holiday season.
We hope to carry on this tradition with your generous help. Transportation for attendees will be provided by special shuttle buses provided by Muni and operated by Cable Car personnel. We would gratefully accept any contributions, but we do particularly request donations of foods cooked meats, vegetables, drinks, rolls and pastries, salads, etc.
Any monetary donations or items that could be used as door prizes are also very much welcomed. The photo is from Photo by Ken Malucelli. Looking up Greenwich Street as two cars enter the passing track Source: Note the funicular car at the upper terminal and the time ball on the roof.
The time ball dropped at noon to allow captains on the bay to set their chronometers. I remember when a later version of the ball was located on the Pacific Bell Building on New Montgomery. It has not been long since it was necessary to climb the steep ascent on foot if you wished to enjoy what is, on a clear day, a fine prospect. Now, the means of climbing Telegraph Hill add considerably to the attractiveness of the excursion. It is a cable car which seems to be attached permanently to the rope.
The car is stopped and started again by means of an electric signal made by the conductor, which is responded to at some distant point by stopping the cable, instead of letting go of it as usual.
Whether this is a measure of safety on perhaps the steepest decline ever climbed by cars, or a mere matter of convenience, it strikes the average passenger very forcibly with its ingenuity.
The observatory on Telegraph Hill is very completely furnished with telescopes, field-glasses and other conveniences, and has also a restaurant, and is used by the population as a pleasure resort.
Looking up Greenwich Street from Columbus in January, The Telegraph Hill Railroad followed this street, including a portion which no longer exists.

The camera looks downhill from Broadway. November, Picture of the Month. There must have been a third car waiting at the top of the hill. Counterbalance car meets its partner at Fillmore and Vallejo. From the Apr San Francisco News: The two cable cars on Fillmore-St's steep hill always cross at Vallejo-St, but one reaches the intersection just enough ahead of the other to divert a stranger's attention.
Fixit suggests that a warning be placed on Vallejo-St, on each side of the intersection. This view, looking east across Fillmore-St, shows the added hazard of having to look over the hill.
