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

So one of my bucket list type items was to ride an old timey steam/coal train. I live in VA and there are several of these type trains in pretty much any direction from me. I chose Cass because of the reviews and things I read online. I made the right choice, it is absolutely beautiful, the town, the area... More

Took the ride (admittedly, as part of a Railfan Weekend) up to Bald Knob, and the views are spectacular. Don't expect this train to be a bullet train, but take it for what it is, a steam-powered look back at what a logging railroad used to look like. The narration on the ride is great, you can look/lean out of... More

What an experience! Rain or shine the train runs so make sure you prepare for the weather. We went on a day with scattered showers and fog at the top but I'd still do it again in a heartbeat. What a treat!

A beautiful ride into the scenic mountains of West Virginia! Let the locals tell you the stories of the past. Check out the gift shop and enjoy your stay! I've been going back every year for this trip since I was a baby. Especially in the fall the scenes are breathtaking!

I work for a railroad, and I didn't really want to ride a train on my vacation. I'm glad I did. Not only a great history lesson, but it was a lot of fun. I suggest this trip for anyone who has an interest in the history of the railroad.

If at all possible you need to take this 4 1/2 hour ride to Blue Knob! It is so cool riding on a steam train run with coal. Take a bag lunch to eat at the Whittiker stop or when you reach the top.

Cass is amazing. The train ride to the top and back is rough 4 hours and wonderful. Great scenery and overlooks. They give history at various points and the whistle is great. There are many great photo areas. They stop halfway on the way up and there is an old station there , along with restrooms and snack bars. It... More

We have ridden the train at Cass a number of times over the years, first with our daughter and now with our grandchildren. We enjoy each ride as though it were new to us. You feel as though you have been taken back in time as you see the black clouds of coal smoke rise from the steam engines and... More
