Circular Bridge

Circular Bridge

Once again overlooking the valley, the Mount Lowe train made a broad sweep around Circular Bridge. The design of the bridge, more at a trestle, was to allow the trolley to negotiate a 12-foot switch back, over 500 feet of track, at a 4% grade in a 340° turn. The wooden structure resembled a section of roller coaster offering an awesome sight over the side of the car looking almost 100 feet straight down.
