A ride up Mount Washington on the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway remains, as it has for well over a century, an exciting and unforgettable experience.

The Mount Washington Cog RailwayThe ever-changing surroundings, the magnificent views, the sights and sounds of unique steam locomotives in action, and some of the steepest Railway tracks in existence, combine to place it among the best of the world's great railway journeys. This is a trip that must be made to be fully appreciated!

Some days the view from the summit of Mount Washington spans four states, Québec, and the Atlantic Ocean, limited only by the curvature of the Earth. Other days you literally climb above the clouds.

But scenery isn't the reason most people ride the Cog Railway -- rain or shine, the exciting three-hour round trip is an unforgettable journey.
