Mount Washington Cog Railway

First taking passengers to the summit in 1869, the Mount Washington Cog Railway is the oldest mountain railway in the world. It is still sometimes referred to as 'the railway to the moon', as potential investors believed such a railway would be easier to build. The journey on the Mount Washington Cog Railway to the top of the 6,228ft (1,898m) up Mount Washington still runs with its vintage steam engines and replica coaches, though on rare occasions the trip is made with a bio-diesel locomotive.

There are incredible views at the summit of the Mount Washington - the highest peak in the Eastern States - which offer a great way to admire the panoramic views of the surrounding White Mountain Range. There is a gift shop, a restaurant and a fascinating museum all on site. The return journey on the Mount Washington Cog Railway is equally enjoyable.
