|San Francisco Cable car, All photos are from Galen's website.|
Traveler Galen's Tale:The driving force behind the San Francisco cable car system came from a man who witnessed a horrible accident on a typically damp summer day in 1869. Andrew Smith Hallidie saw the toll slippery grades could extract when a horse- drawn streetcar slid backwards under its heavy load.

|Here the painting is all blocked-in. There is still a lot of things that need to be worked out yet, but I know where this painting is going.|
|Most of the details are in the now. But there is a few color adjustments yet to be made.|
|Here I've started to concentrate on the cable car more. Defining the car and the people a long with the ground shadow is what was needed.|
|This painting is pretty much there now.|
