Default Van?

Isn't there also a van service that you can ride up with 12-15 passengers?

I think cars are a lot better these days, disc brakes instead of drums, multi-speed auto transmissions, better cooling, etc. The Auto Road company patrols about every 15 minutes with service trucks if you need assistance. I have a friend who once stopped to take pictures. The wife closed/locked the door when she got out, with the keys inside. Auto Road truck came by in just a few minutes, and they were on their way again.
We love the Mt Washington Hotel, so last time we went we stayed overnight to get the first train up, a real steam engine. I think there was a discount for hotel guests.
If you're a member of the Mt Washington Observatory, I think there are some other perks, including private tours of the weather station.
