Synopsis: 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 hill of San Francisco.

From the Back Cover: “No one before or since attempted such a complete history of the cable railway. It ranks very high in the area of U.S. transit history.” —John D. White, Curator Emeritus of Transportation History, Smithsonian Institution
“There was nothing comparable before this book’s appearance, and there has been nothing since.” —Robert M. Vogel, National Museum of American History
