Every trolley layout needs a contraption like this...  

Should be an easy job, a old Brill truck and a Tenshodo SPUD and we are in business.

The Mt Lowe operation is was a bit like the Mt. Tamalpias operation just north of San Francisco. 


The Crookedest Railroad In The World - 'Railroad Books' Forum - Freerails


The Mount Tamalpias & Muir Woods Scenic operation was done with Shays and "Gravity Cars", 
where the cars would be pulled to the top of the mountain and then would coast down into Mill Valley. 

When it was built,
you rode a narrow gauge train into Mill Valley and transferred to the standard gauge Mt Tam operation. 
Shortly the narrow gauge was "broad gauged" and electrified. 

The hotel up there burned in 1929,
and it was the end of the line for the MT&MWSRR.

Thanks for the Mt. Lowe stuff. 
Very cool.
