The cable car in America: a new treatise upon cable or rope traction as applied to the working of street and other railways
Rev. ed., 2nd ed.
Enriched with almost 700 illustrations, this book has long been the definitive study of the American cable car, a widely touted form of urban transportation that operated in 29 cities across the United States. This once-promising technology proved inefficient, however, and cable cars were soon replaced by electric trolley cars. Today, they are only to be found as a tourist attraction traversing the steep hills of San Francisco. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
