I've yet to visit Mt. Wahington, and have always been intrigued by the workings of a cog railway. Does anyone have photos that show just how this machine works?

Hello EC:
Thank you. Those are great photos, and I finally understand how the cog system works.

Found on the website a link to this site, which has many historical photos.

FYI, A photo of 3 cog trains (http://www.mountwashington.org/photos/journal/index.php?month=09&year=2006#1843) at a track junction was recently posted to the Photo Journal.

Here is a picture of my grandson looking down the track at a train going up - near the summit.

there's nothing like standing at the base camp on a crisp day in the fall...combined with the smell of burning coal coming from the cog...perfect!

The http://www.mountwashingtoncograilwayskitrains.com/ Ski Train site says the cars are heated. However, the ski trains start running November 24th.

If they're running you will be cold. Plus, you will have to get out on the summit.Be prepared. You can go inside if you get too cold, but if you want to look around have at least a winter coat, a hat and some gloves.

Thanks to everyones help. It was the most awesome trip to the summit. cold, windy and some snow piled up in the corner of the observation deck. Of course I had to touch the snow:) I am hoping to attach some of the photos of our trip up yesterday via the Cog which was a neat adventure itself.
Well never mind, it wont work, it says the photos are too big to upload, sorry, I am not too computer savy
