San Francisco and it's hilly geographical landscape are quite famous for the tramcars. This is an excellent picture of a tramcar I got from here.

Izwan stopped briefly in SF on his way to Houston earlier this year and he amanged to get some fridge magnets for me. It's a really cool one:

According to Tim Ball, who takes tons of pictures - including of SF trams, "You really don't appreciate how hilly San Fransisco is. A trip on one of the trams can bea nervy experience as you pray that the brakes work."

Here's a close up of the magnet's tramcar. As the pic on the magnet depicted, that is the tram going uphill. Imagine it going downhill!
