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, average grade 1300 feet, 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.
