CASS: Chasing Shay 6 up Cheat Mountain

In June of 2010, Delaware Train videos travels to Eastern West Virginia to once again visit the Cass Scenic Railroad. I havn’t been there in nearly 3 years, so it was nice to be out in shay country again. While there, we chased both operating locomotives up Cheat Mountain to as far as Whittaker station. Here we chase Western Maryland Shay #6, the last shay ever built, up Cheat Mountain

WM Shay 6 to Elkins

On July 10 2008 the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association (MSR&LHA) with the Cass Scenic Railroad and the West Virginia Cenral Railroad (Durbin and Greenbrier Valley RR) ran an excursion with Cass’s Western Maryland Shay #6. Big Six ran the 1st Steam Powered Trip to Elkins, WV in 30 years. Travel along for the ride up Cass Hill and down the Shaver’s Fork of the Cheat River for this historic excursion.
