(TRAVPR.COM) USA - July 28th, 2015 - Looking for a way to beat the heat? In addition to status as the first mountain-climbing cog railway in the world, The Mount Washington Cog Railway stands as the only alpine train ride east of the Rockies!  Located on the tallest peak in the Northeast, The Cog experience combines summer travel’s two key mandates: It’s refreshing and a great deal.

Outfitted with a fleet of both eco-friendly biodiesel and historic steam locomotives, The Cog offers a variety of departure times so family and friends can enjoy the breezy, three-hour round-trip above tree line where the 360-degree view is spectacular (some days you may literally be above the clouds) and the air bracing enough to require a sweater.

Visitors seeking an escape from this year’s heat wave spend nearly an hour in the invigorating atmosphere at the 6,288-foot destination. This week’s forecast is a cool-down of mid 60’s temps and 5-25 mph winds at the summit. Tickets ensure free admission to the summit’s historic Tip Top House and the Observatory’s new "Extreme Mount Washington" exhibit, which, among other fascinating weather-related tasks, charts the daily mercury. The warmest temperature ever recorded was 72°F in 2003.

At the Base Station, complimentary admission to The Cog Railway Museum reveals the groundbreaking rail technology engineered by Sylvester Marsh during the height of the Industrial Revolution. Here, visitors can also get a sneak peek of the Cog’s new documentary, "Climbing to the Clouds, which covers the modern advances of the railway up to the present.

Savvy planners can save a cool $13 on The Cog’s Afternoon Special. This attractive pricing applies to the last train of the day, restrictions apply. Advance ticket purchase recommended. For a detailed schedule and to  purchase tickets online, visit: www.thecog.com or call: 603-278-5404.
