Occre San Francisco Cable Car
San Francisco’s cable cars are an authentic icon of the city. The first cable cars of this kind were brought into operation in London and, many years later, on 2nd August 1873, Andrew S. Hallidie introduced the first San Francisco cable car, on the Clay Street line. 136 years later these attractive vehicles are still running on the streets of San Francisco and form an essential part of the city’s daily life.
The system is based on a cable that is pulled at a constant velocity, along the whole route, by a stationery engine. The cable car starts to move when a device, called a grip, is engaged under pressure to the cable. By loosening this grip, and at the same time applying the breaks, the car is brought to a halt.
