You have managed to give the 'car such wonderful presence . . magic.

Outstanding, I even have butterflies in the pit of the stomach!
Is it really this steep or have you managed to emphasise and exaggerate a little?
It's a very imposing and spectacular view, the tram really holds the attention with its position right on the crest of a rise.

@Curly: Of our three cable car routes - this is the one to ride - the Powell-Hyde line. Yes, Curly - it is really this steep and that little car weighs 11 tons - empty. Ding-ding-a-ding!
