Cable Car Barn -- September 14, 2011

I talked to a group of 6 to 12 year olds from Brightworks School ( about cable cars after a walk around the cable car barn. It was too loud to talk inside. We took a walk up to Huntington Square so they could eat lunch and I could talk a bit and then answer questions. They enjoyed the noon bells at Grace Cathedral. They had some good questions like "What is the difference between a cable car and a bus?" and some interesting questions like "Has a cable car ever had a toilet?"

Their favorite part: a crew was shoveling muck out of the sheave room and a crane on the street was pulling it up in barrels. I had a very good time.

Today I took the shot of car 3 on the Powell-Hyde line, crossing Mason at Jackson.
