Located in the charming, historic town of Cass, WV, the Cass Scenic Railroad State Park transports passengers back in time for an unforgettable adventure. Restored company buildings and the Cass Country Store add to the charm and atmosphere of this quaint old logging town.
Re-live an era when steam-driven locomotives were an essential part of everyday life. Today, train passengers experience breathtaking trips through mountain wilderness areas.
Cass Scenic Railroad offers three train ride destinations: Whittaker Station, Bald Knob, or Spruce.
Trip to Whittaker Station
Vintage Shay steam locomotives, using switchbacks, transport passengers up an 11% grade to a restored logging camp at Whittaker Station. The Shay logging locomotive was designed to climb the steepest grades and swing around hairpin curves.
Whittaker Station is a recreated logging camp of the 1940's which shows both the living quarters and the tools of the loggers. Here, you can leave the train and enjoy spectacular mountain views, rest, eat lunch, and see the authentic logging camp. Round-trip to Whittaker is approximately two hours.
