It is 9:40 AM on a beautiful Sunday morning and Mt. Washington Cog Railway patrons are already queuing up to board the 10 AM train....or trains actually. It is the Columbus Day weekend and the leaf-peepers are out in force. All departures this day will have two sections. In this platform scene shot from Cold Spring Hill, we see MWRC #3 and #10 pushing the orange and yellow coaches respectively. Both trains are positioned on the main line. Just ahead of the lead coach, there is a hydraulically actuated switch that leads to the passing/storage track on the left. A hot spare locomotive (#6) can be seen steaming on this track in the upper left. At the top of the photo, you can see the railway's coal pit and coaling tower. A front-end loader is at work filling the hopper. Just to the right of the trains, the line's water tank towers over the loading area. When these trains leave in just a few minutes, there will be a total of six crawling up and down the slopes of Mt. Washington.
