Views of the track at various points along the way up Mt. Washington viewed from the open door at the end of the train. In a couple of places the tracks are double to allow two trains to pass. Most of the way it's a single track. Bottom left - we are almost there.

Quoting from Yoyo's blog: "There is an area on the way up called Jacob's Ladder - that section has put the Mt. Washington Railway into the Guinness Book of World Records for two reasons - the most treacherous trestle and the highest one. Comforting thought!"

I've never heard of any accidents, Mandy. I'm sure they are very watchful for any problems. And I was glad when we were safely back down.

I was thinking that some of the track looks a bit treacherous!! Glad you made it safely to the top and back !!

I think you and Bent would enjoy the experience, Hanne. I found a picture for you that is an even closer view of the track. I'm looking to see how the cogs work on the track. I think there is a picture of the wheel which might show it. Thanks for enjoying our ride.

I love the way you put all these tracks together, I enjoyed solving this one. I also like the view of the rails, it very original and the tracks really make you understand for how long these trains have been running.
Here is where I come to an end to my midday entertainment for today. I started with the first puzzles but then I realised that I had to start at the end as to understand everything properly.
As soon as I get another while, I'll go back to see the rest of your trip since I left you some days ago. :))
Thanks a lot for sharing all this with us and all the information. As I told you I love to learn new things even though my memory isn't as good as it was and I forget more than half that I read, at least I learn the other half. LOL

Wasn't sure if people would be interested in tracks but the scenery is great. Thanks, Pat.

When we came to switches we went very slowly. I don't think there have been any accidents on this. I haven't heard of any anyway. Thanks, Barb.

I'm not sure I like the sounds of 'the most treacherous trestle', but you obviously arrived at the top just fine and back as well. Interesting views of the track along the way, Ardy. :-)
