We picked an amazingly clear day to ride the Cass Railroad to Bald Knob. WOW. I would recommend the car furthest from the engine - less noise, less cinders and soot and in the front of the train for some of the ride. With the engine at your back in the station most of the views are from the right... More

**ATTN** make sure you know where you are going to get to this and that you dont get lost cus the first train is at 11:28am no matter what, it will leave without you...and the next one is at 2:15. We took a wrong turn and ended up in the wrong direction and almost in another city. Other than getting... More

Overall nice park and friendly dedicated staff. The train ride itself was a bit disappointing. Good for younger children but older children will be bored.

Going on the train to Bald Knob is a great way to see the park. The trains climb up the mountain at about 5 mph and the views are wonderful from the open sided carriages.

Take a step back into time and go for a ride on a for-real coal fired locomotive. You'll find it here in Cass WV. There was a package advertized of their website. A ride, dinner and a "who-dun-it". Reasonably priced. But, something you will never say is..."I was in the neighborhood". To go to Cass, you have to want to... More

This lovely little town is just what the doctor ordered for a stress free fun day with the family. Lovely country store, nice quite neighborhood streets to stroll and see all of the old homes that were restored from over a hundred years ago. Now take a slow ride on the train, now this is a steam train so be... More

This state park is unusual because it is about the logging industry. You can visit the old town of Cass, where 20 of the company houses have been renovated to rent for overnights. You can visit a museum. You can go in a old building that used to house hay and coal, and see a diorama and see a short... More

I've been coming here for thirty years. This is one of my all-time favorite attractions. When you visit Cass, you'll park in the spacious lot along the Greenbrier River. The whole town and station is laid out before your eyes. You walk up to the tracks and smell the oil and creosote on the tracks. But where is the train?... More

This was a cool bit of history to see. The company house and many historical buildings are intact. There are tours of the engine machine shop and a beautiful engine on display. Unfortunately, we missed seeing the locomotive fired up! The visitor' center was especially helpful.
