Mount Washington Cog Railway Celebrates 150 Years

I received an email the other day congratulating Mount Washington’s 150th anniversary in time for the new summer season. Some of you will have already read about my visit in 2018 (if not here) New England 26 May – Mount Washington

On a clear day apparently you can see the Atlantic Ocean from the summit. At 6288 feet it is the highest peak in the North-East. At the top which can be reached by hiking, or by road or by the Cog Railway. This train ride is literally in the middle of nowhere in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Please have a look at the magnificence of the Cog Railway and the scenery on it’s website

The Cog


Then look at these videos of my visit last year!



Actually the scenery on the way down suddenly came into view and I did see some brightness.

Happy Anniversary Cog Railway!
