Men­tion ca­ble cars

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - OPINION -

Re­gard­ing “An S.F. tour: the prime, the grime” (Nov. 14): In a very good ar­ti­cle about what vis­i­tors like and don’t like about San Fran­cisco, Cas­san­dra Costello, vice pres­i­dent for pub­lic pol­icy at S.F. Travel says some­thing puz­zling. She talks about how peo­ple are in awe of the magic of San Fran­cisco: “Peo­ple are in awe of the magic of San Fran­cisco — all the things we love: the rolling hills, the fog, the trol­ley cars, find­ing those hid­den neigh­bor­hood gems.”

Yes, the F-Mar­ket line has some nicely col­ored “tor­pedo” trol­ley cars, but I didn’t think peo­ple come from all over to ride the F-Mar­ket. They do come to ride the ca­ble cars, which she did not men­tion. I would think that some­body in Costello’s po­si­tion at S.F. Travel would know the dif­fer­ence be­tween a trol­ley car and a ca­ble car. Tony Ben­nett is not singing about trol­ley cars.
