In this photo you are looking at one of the switchback tracks that's used when two engines are passing. We were heading up at this point. An engine and car coming down from the top would pull over and let us pass, and then the track would be moved back to the left. You can clearly see the teeth in this picture, and in the distance a water tank for the one steam engine that makes the trip once a day. On this narrow gauge track the engine and car just 'zips' along up the mountain. Of course, we're all cogs in the big picture of the world at one time or another. When we function as: a member of an organization who performs necessary but usually minor or routine functions, we're cogs.
The railway of life just keeps chuggin' along.

Pretty clever workmanship I'd say.ReplyDelete
Great perspective too!ReplyDelete
I'd never heard of a cog railway until we visited Colorado Springs but they work pretty well.ReplyDelete
I had never heard of these until your post of yesterday! Great shot.ReplyDelete
The trip up the mountain looks like it would be fun. I bet there's a great view from the top. And the train would make it so much more of an adventure, and I'm always ready for an adventure. I love finding out about how things work so thanks for the closeup pic and the cog info.ReplyDelete
the water tank is cool. cheaper than other fuel...maybe (unless you're in cali). :)ReplyDelete
Great explanation of the cog! Great example of the cog!ReplyDelete
I've got a lot of catching up to do! Scrolling through, I really dig your eye and words, Mark. Man, are you missed over at the ole coggin' grounds. That sounds like a nice trip, and this was a great place to snap one for us!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by buddy to check in.Delete
Trains, tracks, and all things railroad fascinate me, so thanks for the lesson and the great photo.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photo to show how the mechanism works. Sometimes I feel like a cog in a wheel whereas other times I feel pretty unique.ReplyDelete
