Shay 11 Works Hard on Cass Hill
Author: Appalachianrails

May 2014.

It is the second day of the 2014 Railfan Weekend at the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia. The scheduled photo runbys on Cass Hill have just been completed but participants are now eager after finding out that they will get an extra runby with Shay 11.

The 1923 product of the Lima Locomotive Works puts on a great show of sight and sound as it works hard up Cass Hill with its 10 car train. Thanks to the proper maintenance and care of the workers at the Cass shops, Number 11 is still reliable just like it was in its past as Number 3 for the Hutchinson Lumber Company and Feather River Railway.

Next weekend, the shays of Cass will be putting on shows for photographers once again at the 2018 Rail Heritage Weekend. There are still tickets available for those that are still interested. Link >>> http://mountainrailwv.com/tour/spring-photo-special/ <<<

Who are our TO members that will be at Cass next weekend?

I'd LOVE to be there, but sadly cannot make it. I plan on getting back to Cass ASAP, as it is a truly great place to see, hear, and ride behind steam.
