Cable Car Turntable

San Francisco's iconic cable cars are loads of fun to ride — if you can get a seat. In theory, you can board at any stop along the route, but the cars are usually too crowded to accommodate new passengers. San Franciscans in the know board at the cable cars' terminuses, like this one at the base of Powell Street, where the cars are turned around on a giant spinning platform and set off on their routes.
