Having been up the Cog Railway at Pikes Peak in Colorado first, I was skeptical this railway could measure up. I was pleasantly surprised. The railway is a top notch operation, the conductors/tour narrators are very interesting and witty. Not only did our Conductor tell us about the railway and its history, he entertained us with facts on the mountain, the adjacent peaks and the history behind the naming of New Hampshire Mountains in general. I think this is the best way up the mountain. There is a road, but not only is it hard on your vehicle and brakes, you don't get to ride on a historic railway. Note its a railway and not a railroad, its too short for a railroad. Anyway, go, enjoy and learn something! Well worth the money to travel to this geographically and Meteorlogically significant mountain peak.
