June 22, 2012 | Filming for KCET on Echo Mountain
A film crew from KCET organized a trip with Brian Marcroft and Susan Mumford to Echo Mountain to record an episode for a project they were doing on incline trolley cars. This project was led by Nathan Masters, producer and managing editor for "Lost LA". Unfortunately, this episode never aired and we do not have the completed video. Perhaps one day we'll be able to see it.
Nathan Masters documented information on Mount Lowe on the KCET website, see below:

The Mount Lowe Railway would have been Episode 4.
