Remarks & Notes 
In 2005 and 2006 the cog railway operated a ski train part way up Mt. Washington. Skiers would ride the cog up to Waumbek tank (about 1/3 the way up the mountain), then ski down beside the tracks. For me this was a great way to combine two of my hobbies perfectly. It was great being able to ski right next to a flailing steam locomotive backing down the mountain. Unfortunately it must not have made money and the ski trains didn't return after the 2006 season.

Beautiful mountain scenery has made this small state a draw for rail buffs to ride the Mount Washington Cog Railway and the Conway Scenic, among others.
