This ride to Bald Knob was so much fun.....in an open air train car right behind the engine. Up and back takes over 4 1/2 hours but you stay at the top for about 45 minutes.....and they provide a box lunch included with the price of the ticket. I was just disappointed that we didn't stop at the first stop... More

I went to Cass as a kid, but I don't remember it except for some scenes from home movies. So I decided to go back now that I would better appreciate the history. The train ride to Whittaker was the right length, not too long, but enough for the experience. I enjoyed the views from the top and along the... More

Not only was the train ride great, but took a tour of the shop where they restore and maintain the trains. Ended with a walking tour of the company town. You can rent former worker homes to stay in. I'm adding to my to do list.

We just got home from a three day visit to Cass Scenic Railroad WV. It was a wonderful time. There were nine of us six stayed in a company house in Cass. The house was much nicer than I thought it would be. We went on the Bald Knob train ride which lasted close to 5 hours. It was fun... More

Cass is a place that would be lost to time without the railway and status as a state park and I am so glad that it is not. The park rangers and employees in the different businesses were so welcoming and offered so much information and history. Be sure to visit the different museums and exhibits - I loved the... More

We took the morning train ride and really enjoyed it. It is very scenic and amazing that the engine used was able to take the train on the steep grades that we climbed. We only went to the Whittaker stop (the site of a former logging camp) because we were there on opening weekend. Later in the year might be... More

This was the highlight of my four year-old's (and my husband's!) trip! The train ride itself is full of beautiful views. Watching how the train navigates the switchbacks was very interesting. We did the shortest ride up to Whittaker, a recreated 1940s logging camp. It was a beautiful setting with a meadow, a perfect place for the kids to run... More

Cass is almost a yearly stop, and has been for more than 30 years. It is more than just a train tide, it is a step back in history. A ride up the mountains with a former logging locomotive is just a start. The views are fantastic, and any machinery buff can just sit next to the locomotive and enjoy... More

What a great place in the fall. Leaves look as if God tipped over paint buckets in West Virginia. For years we rented a house in Cass, road the train, hiked in the forests. A grand time. As usual, West Virginia parks are a bargain. The houses are fully equipped, comfortable and beat camping by a country mile. Nearby Greenbank... More

It is a living history lesson and there is nothing like a steam whistle. My wife and I had a great time and wish we could have had the grand kids with us. I just wish I could have pulled that whistle myself. We took one of the shorter rides which lasted a couple of hours. It was just the... More
