Here are the remains of one of the electric Mt Lowe trolleys that was accidently discovered by one of the volunteers that helped clear the ruin grounds. Apparently, the trolley had been pushed down the south face of Echo Mountain sometime after the end of the resort operations. A helicopter was used to hoist the trolley remains back up to the resort site. Notice the snow-plow front end.
