"At one point in history the Boston and Maine Railroad owned and operated the MT Washington."
Yes, but not this one. The B&M's ship, the SS Mt. Washington, was a steam powered side-wheeler, with a huge walking beam above her decks. She was destroyed by fire, ice bound at her winter dock in the Weirs in December, 1939. The fire had started in the railroad station, which seems somehow phrophetic.
