FAQs

  • When should I arrive for my train?

    All passengers should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure time to allow time for ticketing and restroom visits, as there are no restrooms on the trains. You may board 15 minutes before the scheduled trip, and seats are on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is suggested that all passengers use the restrooms, visit the gift shop, and dine at Marshfield Base Station prior to and/or after their excursion. If you arrive late, there is no guarantee that there will be room left on scheduled train, but can go out on the next available.
  • How long is the ride on the Cog railway?

    The roundtrip journey to the summit of Mt. Washington Valley is 3 hours for a 9-mile run. With one hour up, one hour back, and one hour to get off and explore Sherman Adams Visitor Center, museum, gift shop, and post office, make sure to stop and take in the unparalleled views of New England and beyond from the highest peak in the US.
