Additional Details:
(Grade 1980 Ft. to the mile). 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 ft. 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 submit.
