The infamous San Francisco cable car

The technology of these cable cars which run through San Francisco city dates back to 1870s. And it is still operational. Yes, still manually, as it was done 100 years ago. It's a really interesting experience. (Well, the ride isn't quiet or plush at all, but seeing the driver operate the car, engaging the cables and hand braking manually IS interesting!)
