Halfway there on the Cog Railway

A popular attraction at Mount Washington is the Cog Railway which is the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway. As you slowly ride up the mountain you are continually amazed that the railway has been in use for over 144 years despite the steep incline (second steepest rack railway in the world).
