The rail trip was worth the visit

The trip is costly but its something everyone should try at least once. I guarantee there will not be a disappointment.

There are several old coal fired trains on site. You can take a short trip or a longer trip to Bald Knob based on your time and schedule. We were there in Oct and it was nice, but cold as you go up the mountain as the cars are open. We took the shorter trip and they stop and give... More

For sometime, many rail fans have urged me to visit here and on the coldest day of the fall foliage season I did. This ride was to the top of the Bald Knob. I was able to ride in the open car next to the primary engine, # 6. If you think the engine provide heat, your wrong. Remember the... More

This is a fun day for a family. It's pricey, of course. However, it is a nice experience. We took a picnic and ate lunch (like many do) at the top of the mountain.

This was a bucket list item for my Dad. We went when the leaves were just starting to turn. Not only was the train ride a great experience, it was a fun way to see the leaves and that time of year, the trains are not over crowded. We pretty much had the car all to ourselves so it was... More

We elected to stay in the park housing - adorable white clapboard family homes. Be aware that if you are planning to cook for your family you will need to bring your groceries as there are not many stores nearby that sell basic provisions. The park offers several train excursions; one that includes a picnic lunch. It is quite a... More

Have been to Cass a few times in my life, it is always a fun day. Train ride excellant and the store very interesting and fun to stroll, many items from long ago. My grandkids had a ball, will be going back I'm sure.

Old logging town, 3 remaining shay locomotives in operation here. Took train ride to Bald Knob. Breathtaking scenery, wonderful staff. To me this was an experience of a lifetime.

Nice train ride. I was expecting a little more of a Halloween experience but still a nice time. Very cold. If you come this time of year, be prepared and wear very warm clothing. Maybe bring a blanket.
