Review of San Franciscos Cable Cars - Riding the Ropes Through the City DVD

Come aboard for spectacular video of San Francisco's fabled cable cars. You will enjoy seeing the Powell-Mason, Powell-Hyde, and California Street lines from the head end, line side, and exclusive pacing action shots. See the "armstrong" turntables where the Powell Street cars are turned at each end of the line. A gallery of still shots shows you some of the unique signs and sights associated with these relics from the 19th century. A bonus section even includes the drive down the twisty and world famous Lombard Street. Limited narration with location shown by on screen titles.
