November 10, 2019 -- Steam Power
Steam Power -- A shot from the base depot of Mt. Washington's Cog Railway with the steam powered locomotive starting its climb to the top of Mt. Washington (called Agiocochook by some Native American tribes), is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288.2 ft and the most topographically prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. The cog railway to the top was the world's first cog rail operation and began service on July 3, 1869. The rail to the top has an average grade of 25% and a max grade of 37.41%. The day we went to the peak, the temperature at the top was 35 degrees fahrenheit (1.1 C) with sustained winds of 47 mph, gusting to 58. Brrrrrrrr!
