Experience one of the world's great railway journeys through the White Mountain National Forest aboard the Mount Washington Cog Railway.  Begin with spectacular views of the White Mountains during a 2.5 hour scenic motor coach ride from Portland into New Hampshire. At the Marshfield Base Station, board the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway to the summit of Mt. Washington, New England's highest peak.  Back in 1869, this new technology of toothed-gears, rack rails and tilted boilers was an engineering marvel.  

Experience this marvel firsthand aboard a fully restored car, powered by an authentic coal-fired steam train. Take in the sights and sounds of unique steam locomotives in action on some of the steepest railway tracks in existence. On a perfectly clear day, the view from Mt. Washington spans four states, Quebec, and the Atlantic Ocean.  As your train ride concludes, take a moment to browse the Base Station gift shop before making the 2.5 hour return drive to Portland.
