Every now and then someone is so exceptional at what they do that it bears acknowledging. Yesterday's ride up to Bald Knob with Josh as our conductor, commentator and host, was one such experience. The scenery, the train, the time was all special. But the...More

If you love old trains, mountains, and train smoke, this stop is a must. Gift shop "the last stop" is a real treat. We were here to bicycle on The Greenbriar River Trail and Cass is the Northern terminus for this 80 mile bike rail/trail.

This was the main attraction for a group ride of our motorcycle club. Along with the Durbin Rocket (a gem NOT to be missed, a short drive away!) this was the highlight of an avid railfan. I've always liked the Shay, and to be able...More

If you are a steam train fan like I am, then this is a great trip for you to take.. The Shay locomotive pulls or pushes your car up an incline of up to a 12% grade. There are several opportunities to photograph the engine...More

We were told not to move from car to car. Our third car had a restroom. Ask in the station before you board. The staff was very friendly and will accommodate you if they understand the need.
