Cog Railroad, with Mount Clay and Jefferson
Lizzie Bourne Memorial, she was the first documented case of someone dying on the mountain.  She was a teenager, they ran into cold weather and bad visibility and could not find the summit which was just a couple hundred feet away.  The group laid down for the night in the elements but she did not make it and succumbed to hypothermia.

The Cog.  The first train up for the day is always the coal train.  It's not run as much for efficiency reasons
