Ride to the top of Mt. Washington—New England's highest peak—on the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway.

This three-hour round trip is truly New England's most unique vacation experience. Step aboard an authentic coal-fired steam train (limited runs), or one of the new biodiesel locomotives as it climbs one of the steepest tracks in the world, rain or shine. A stop at the summit includes free admission to the Observatory Museum. Enjoy watching the trains from Marshfield Base Station, which features great views along with a museum, restaurant, and gift shop. Open late April-early December.
