    Background: SAN FRANCISCO, USA

    San Francisco's cable cars are back on the streets after a twenty-month restoration programme. The service, which dates back one-hundred and nine years, is the last surviving cable car system in the Unites States. The cars, which are pulled by underground cables, are one of the city's tourist attractions. Each vehicle has a bell which is sounded to warn motorists and pedestrians to keep clear. Large crowds lined the streets of San Francisco on June 3 to watch the newly-restored wars go up and down the hilly streets. Passengers waved balloons as they went by. The renovation project has cost an estimated seventy-five million US dollars and the bill has been met by private donations and government funds.
