(Mount Washington Cog Railway)
The Little Engine That Could
We picked up the cog railway at the base station on a beautiful Saturday morning.
The view as the engine pushed our car up the mountain.
The steepest grade during the ascent was thirty percent! (Roads rarely go more than ten percent.)
The kids were relieved to finally make it to the summit in the rattling, creaking coal-fired train.
Soon after we arrived at the summit, the mountain was enveloped in a cloud and snow started to fall.
The first engine that ran this line was the inspiration for the "Little Engine That Could" children's story.
