6145Re: [FJGRailroad] Mt. Washington Cog Railway (Re: trolleys to Chicago)
- Jan 3, 2002Gino
I have been told by a friend who did the trip on the Cog Railway that it is a very jarring ride and a once (only once) in a lifetime experience. We did the auto road once in July. Temperature was in the low 80s at the base, and 37 at the summit. The wind chill is very severe. The summit is about 6,300 feet.

You're thinking of the Mount Washington Cog Railway, a truly unique
railroad. It runs from the base to the summit, including a meet with
a train from the other direction. Cog railway switches are something
Anyone going to visit it should bring warm clothes, as the summit
never gets above 65 degrees and is frequently in the clouds. Be
warned, too: it's an expensive trip.
