We went to the Cass Scenic Railroad and rode number 5 triain through the mountain and on some old tracks. It was a nice ride but I would have liked to see more history along the route rather that have a guide read about the parts we were on. The old coal train was a treat to ride. You do... More

We took the excursion to the top of Bald Knob. They use historic locomotives to push/pull a train full of eager tourists through two switchbacks to an ultimate elevation of over 4500 feet! They serve a "hobo lunch" on board the train (which was great!) with ice-cold water. The trip up the mountain takes a bit over two hours, and... More

Too late for the train ride (which for two is $ 75+ ), but some interesting shops and displays with a nice restaurant. On shop has 30 members that homemake everything in the shop from soaps to cutting boards. 20 minutes history film and a large gift shop where I found deep fried peanuts where you eat the shell and...

We went there last weekend and took the train ride to Whitaker Station and back. I think it was about a 1 1/2 hour train ride. It was really nice. It was my son's first trip to Cass. He loved it. He is ready to go back and take the train to Bald Knob. That one is about a 4... More

We have been to Cass on several occasions - loved it! Great place to relax, very peaceful once the train rides are over for the day. We stayed in one of the Company Houses each time - loved them - like stepping back in time! We were only 2 in the house and we liked having it all to ourselves.... More

We took the excursion from the Cass RR station to Bald Knob and back. 5 hours round trip with stops at Bald Knob and Whitaker Station. I think it was just supposed to be 4.5 hours but there were some delays. The temperature at Bald Knob can be 15 to 20 degrees cooler than at Cass so take jackets along.... More

Nice ride to Bald Knob, elevation 4400 feet. 4.5 hours round trip. Coal fired steam locomotive. You will get a bottle of water and a basic box lunch as part of the trip. One tip- use the facilities before getting on the train, especially if you are taking the Bald Knob Excursion. Although one car has a bathroom, you won't... More

Our family with 7 grandkids ages 1 to 11 took it along with the adults. Everybody enjoyed it. One of our little guys with asthma had a bit of a rough time as the steam had a lot of coal particles in it.

Let me first say that this review is for the houses in the park that you can stay and not for the train ride, because we did not ride the train. The park has a little town where the workers used to stay in for the timber industry. The state of WV took over the town of Cass & the... More

My wife and I were in the area and she wanted to experience the train ride and she loved it. My last ride was about 20 years ago so I was ready for another ride myself. Some of the engines are over 100 years old. Number 5 is over 110 years old. The souvenir shops and museums are worth a... More
