|The pictures show a view of all (12) Old Mount Washington, New Hampshire Cog Railway Photograph Slides in this lot. The first (6) are from the 1950s, the next three are from 1970, and the last three are from 1971. Here is some information found online about the Cog Railway:|
''The original "little train that could", the Mount Washington Cog Railway has been climbing to the summit of Mt. Washington, New Hampshire since July 3, 1869. The track runs along a steep, 3.1 mile long trestle whose maximum gradient is over 37%, making it the second steepest mountain climbing train in the world, second only to the Pilatus Bahn in Switzerland. The only railroad on Earth whose entire run is built on a trestle, the Mount Washington Cog Railway takes visitors on a timeless adventure to the summit of the 6288' mountain, 'home of the world's worst weather.''
The slides each measure 2'' x 2'' x 0''. The transparency slides are in mint as made condition as pictured. The first six slides are between glass and the black photo tape around them needs to be replaced. The glue has dried from age.
