The Mount Washington Cog Railway

THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME! The Mount Washington Cog Railway, the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway, has been carrying passengers to the 6,288' summit of the Northeast's highest peak since 1869. This 3-hour journey will take you on some of the steepest railway tracks in the world. You will witness some of New England's most breathtaking scenery - from the alpine forest and unique tundra region above treeline to the rugged terrain of the Presidential Range. Now including a stop at the summit and free admission to the Observatory Museum! Choose your motive power: nostalgic steam-powered locomotives - or the efficient new biodiesel trains. Boarding our Victorian-Era replica coaches is like journeying back in time. A truly unforgettable family excursion!
