Remarks & Notes 
The Future of the Mt. Washington Cog Railway. The Mount Washington Cog Railway's Diesel Locomotive M-1 descends off Jacob's Ladder with the final train of the day. In the distance, a tiny steamer can be seen following slowly behind on Long Trestle. In the near future, scenes like this will be a memory as distant as the steamer in this photo. The railroad has been very pleased with the peformance of M-1 as a prototype and there are now two similar units in the final stages of completion in the shops at Marshfield Station. They are scheduled to go on line in just a couple of weeks. When that happens, the Cog will be primarily a diesel operation. The first trip of each day will be powered by steam and all subsequent trips will look like the one seen here.
