I have stopped here several times. I have visited here as a child and again as an adult. This place is excellent for making memories with your family. Only bad thing was when I was on the train ride I was in an open area and got a coal cinder in my eye. You may want to bring eye drops... More

We try to take a fall trip with our grandson who loves train rides and this year we choose the Cass train. It was a wonderful overall experience starting with shopping at the company store, lunch at the store, looking and getting pictures of the extra train cars they have on site and finally the train ride. We were prepared... More

This is a 2 hour train ride that goes through the woods and stops at Whittaker station. The station has food drinks and ice cream! it feels pretty up there, like the air is fresh and the sky is gorgeous and everything for that one moment seems right. we have ridden 3 trains and this was by far one of...

Buying a ticket in advance for the Cass Railroad is easy to do on their website, but it may not be the best idea. We acquired our tickets in advance, but the day we chose to travel was unbelievably foggy. We missed the great views of several counties from the top of the mountain. Once we caught a fleeting glimpse... More

This state park is well-maintained by the State of West Virginia. The food at the diner is relatively good and inexpensive. Wi-Fi coverage is free and ubiquitous.

Wonderful trip, fun for all, beautiful, and historic ride. Ride behind a Shay locomotive into a time long since passed and view the beautiful fall leaves - this is just what we did! The ride was comfortable, the staff knowledgeable, and scenery sublime! I can not imagine a better way to enjoy a vacation, time with family, and the gorgeous... More

Oh boy, where do I start....let me just say ya can't help but smile when you see the train pulling into the station and you hear that awesome whistle blow, then as it echoes through the valley. You don't have to be a train aficionado to appreciate the brute strength of such an engineering accomplishment with coal, heat, water and... More

We caught the train at the Cass Station (after visiting the gift shop) and journeyed, with a stop at the breathtakingly beautiful falls, up to Elkins where we spent the night - had a great dinner at C J Maggie's and then walked around town a bit. Boarded our train the next morning for our return trip to Cass, via... More

I am a photographer that specializes in wildlife but the chance to photograph operating steam locomotives was too much to let skip by. The staff at CSR was cordial, enev the saturday rain didn't put a damper on the event. A beautiful place to visit especially in the fall for a great rail ride or just enjoy the fall colors

My husband and I booked a trip on the train to Whittaker Station. We arrived early so we could check out the town. It's small but very nice. During our wait we shopped at the gift shop, checked out the visitors center, ate at the Last Stop restaurant, checked out the museum and the Artistry gift shop. We really enjoyed... More
