Mount Lowe: The Railway in the Clouds
"Southern California's Mount Lowe Railway lived up to its title "The Most Scenic Mountain Railway in the World." In its short trackage from Altadena to Alpine Tavern, its rails climbed 3,130 feet in 5.84 miles, thus constituting an engineering marvel. This book chronicles in word and picture the building of the electric railway into Rubio Canyon, the construction of the great incline on a 62 percent grade, and the narrow guage trolley from Echo Mountain to Alpine Tavern. The Alpine Division's tracks followed the natural contour of the mountainside, over 18 trestles and around 127 curves." ~ Golden West Books
