Additional Details:
A massive trestle over which the cog-wheel engine pushes the coach up the steep side of Mt. Washington (a distance of three miles) which has an average grade of 1300 feet and a maximum grade of 1980 feet to the mile. At this point the tree line ends and the Sub-Alpine vegetation begins. The air grows colder, and colder as we ascend and a marvelous vista spreads before us as we reach the summit
