The Mount Washington Cog Railway is one of the world’s great rail adventures, and an exhilarating journey through history, technology and nature. This first-in-the-world mountain climbing cog railway has been making its dramatic 3-hour round trip to the summit of the highest peak in the Northeast (6288’) for over 150 years. Powered by custom built biodiesel or vintage steam locomotives, clear weather provides spectacular panoramic views from Quebec to the Atlantic Ocean.
Now open year-round, The Cog is a great way to comfortably experience the majesty of the mountain in winter. Come see why P.T. Barnum called the Cog Railway on Mount Washington “the second greatest show on earth!”
