Thompson and Meserves Purchase, NH – Wayne Presby, owner of the Mount Washington Cog Railway, has made the decision to close the railway for the remainder of the 2017 season after accessing damage from the recent storm on Sunday, October 29.  The Mount Washington Cog Railway is located on Base Road near Bretton Woods, NH.

Extensive damage to base trestle bridge due to flooding waters of the Ammonoosuc River and debris has rendered the railway inoperable. The trestle will be repaired and the tracks inspected before operations resume.  The railway expects to re-open for its regular season in the spring of 2018.
