1873 - The first Cable Car in San Francisco.
In 1982, the world-famous San Francisco Cable Car system was completely shut down for two years. During that time, the cable car system — from the powerhouse machinery to the cables and tracks — was completely overhauled. The historic cable cars themselves were being refurbished at that time, too. The system was brought back into service in the summer of 1984.

The Cable Car system used to be extremely extensive, spanning nearly the whole city.
