Remarks & Notes 
Train time up on the roof. The sun has gone for the day and the sky has begun to darken. A few stars begin to make their presence known. With the loss of the sun and a little wind, a distinct chill is telling the visitors on the summit of New Hampshire's Mt. Washington that it is time to go and some of them are beginning to straggle back to the railway platform on the east side of the summit. Standing beside his coach, the train's Brakeman/Conductor gazes off toward the Sherman Adams building, looking for his passengers. In the cab, Fireman Joe Eggleston has just affixed a small, portable LED lamp to the rear of the tender on MWRC #2. Since these locomotives don't have a dynamo, a battery-powered lamp is needed to provide the illumination so Joe can see the track during the descent, as most of that descent will be in darkness. Shortly, Engineer Mark Sodergren will sound one, long whistle as a formal call to the passengers to return to the train. The steamer will lead the parade of trains down the hill tonight, followed by 3 more diesel-powered sections. By the time we all reach Marshfield Station, it will be about 7:30 PM local time and it will be rather cold and dark. So ends another day in the 152 year history of America's oldest tourist railroad.
