Mount Washington Cog Railway—Revisited

Many many years ago.

In the dusts of time.

Before  I carried a camera!

I traveled on the Mount Washington Cog Railway.

I was very young and it was bitterly cold at the summit, so the charms of the railway were lost on me.

Last Saturday, my friends and I revisited this world famous attraction.

The Mount Washington Cog is 150 years old this year and the oldest cog railway in the world. It is built almost entirely upon a wooden pile trestle with an average gradient of 25 percent (1 in 4).

The views get more impressive as you gain in elevation.

Although largely operated with ‘bio diesels’, there are still some steam locomotives.

I made these photographs from the base station as we were getting ready to board. I largely focused on the diesels, as the steam was only being prepped and not working the mountain.

More soon!
