There have been several attempts over the years to establish a memorial that befits the wondrous 45 year history of the Mount Lowe Railway. This Centennial Celebration was certainly a day to remember. But it is satisfying to know that earlier this year the National Register of Historic Places saw fit to include the Mount Lowe Railway on its prestigious list.
May the dreams of Thaddeus Lowe and David MacPherson live on!
