Cass Scenic Railroad Old-Fashion Wiener Roast

July 3, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


 Old-Fashion Wiener Roast

July 3, Cass Scenic Railroad (Departs Cass, WV Depot)

The Cass Scenic Railroad is the same line built in 1901 to haul lumber to the mill in Cass. The locomotives are the same Shay locomotives used in Cass during that time, and in the rainforests of British Columbia for more than a half-century. Many of the passenger cars are old logging flat cars that have been refurbished.

Cass is the home to the world’s largest fleet of geared Shay locomotives. Six Shays, one Heisler and one Climax reside here. The legendary turn-of-the-century class C-80 Shay, #5 has been toiling up Cheat Mountain for nearly 100 years, making it one of the oldest engines in continuous service on its original line, and the second oldest Shay in existence.

Whittaker Station is located four miles up the track from Cass. At Whittaker Station –  the location of the authentic logging camp recreated by the volunteers of the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association, passengers have the opportunity to get off the train to enjoy the views and tour the camp. Restrooms and a concession stand are available at this stop.

Begin the 4th of July weekend with an Old-Fashion wiener roast at Whittaker Station. Fun includes a campfire with fireside music by Rebel Union and nighttime ride back to Cass. Bring a blanket and warm sweater. Rebel Union plays hits from the 60’s. The 1860’s, that is. Traditional Appalachian Folk and a bit of Irish thrown in there and a downright good time and you’ve got the essence of this band.rebel union
