Mt Washington Cog Railway

This summer found us back in New England, and inevitably the lure of the Mt Washington Cog Railway got the better of me again. I love the way these engines look like something I would put together in my garage, built out of an old wardrobe, a central heating tank, and the innards of a broken washing machine. But actually these engines are perfectly designed for the job they do: climbing very steep slopes on rather uneven tracks, year after year.
