A long twisty road to get to the railway, but what a trip when you get there. We went to the top, and the views were stunning, especially as the leaves were turning. Poor quality coal so lots of smoke and fuss. We also had a very knowledgeable lady show us round the works, allin all agreat day out.

We went on the train in October and the leaves were just beautiful. We took the short trip to Whittaker Station which was plenty long. The stop at Whittaker Station was a pleasant surprise. Such an awesome area to get off train, stretch your legs and take in the views. The train was comfortable and the cost very reasonable. Well... More

We went to bald knob - to the top. Loved the train ride. It was a four hour round trip, but did not feel that long. there is a shorter trip that only goes to whittaker station, but we would recommend the longer trip.It is a steam engine so lots of good pictures with the smoke pouring out. It is... More

Train ride was really fun on a beautiful warm (75ish) day in early October. The leaves were absolutely beautiful.

I hadn't ridden on a train in years and made this attraction a priority. And we got our money's worth! Our locomotive broke down--which was very uncommon--and our four hour trip turned into a five hour plus trip! But the scenery on the ride is not spectacular; especially if you live in mountains. The train attendants, etc. were very gracious,... More

I have a problem with heights, but I sat on the inside and was fine. Beautiful scenery that I you would have a hard time to compare.

This open air steam ride is lots of fun. Remember it is cooler at the top of the mountain. The fall leaves were beautiful.

Decided on the spur of the moment to go on the Cass Scenic Railroad Bald Knob tour. Went specifically at this particular time as the fall foliage was at its' peak in change of colors. What a treat to enjoy the railroad trip during this time of year! Only concern was that even though we made our reservations in advance... More

Excellent train ride. My dad is a railfan and we took a ride to Whittaker Station as a break from fly fishing. Definitely the best ride we have been on - that includes trips in Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana, and Illinois. The trees were just starting to change colors which was nice. The cars are open so you will... More

We took the 4 1/2 hour ride to Bald Knob. We called and pre ordered our tickets then arrived 2 hours early to walk around and check out some of the idling engines. Excellent photo opp as the earlier train was departing. We thought the museum was neat, really taking you back to remind you of how far technology has... More
