Cass Scenic Railroad

USA
Duration: 38:47
Format : 16/9 SD
Author: Rodriguez Gérard
Entry date: 5/16/2015
Recorded in 2012

The Cass Scenic Railroad is the same line built in 1901 to haul lumber to the mill in Cass. The locomotives are the same Shay locomotives used in Cass during that time, and in the rainforests of West Virginia for more than a half-century. Many of the passenger cars are old logging flat cars that have been refurbished. Cass is the home to the world’s largest fleet of geared Shay locomotives. Six Shays, one Heisler and one Climax reside here. The legendary turn-of-the-century class C-80 Shay, #5 has been toiling up Cheat Mountain for nearly 100 years, making it one of the oldest engines in continuous service on its original line, and the second oldest Shay in existence.
