Shortly again, Cass
starts steaming-onward and upward,
continuing a journey that rolls from a
2,452-foot elevation
in the restored company town called
Cass to a perch of
more than 4,800 feet
above sea level. At

Fishing At Durbin

Be sure to bring your camera on Cass
Scenic Railroad. Longtime employee
Roger Cain narrates the journey
and often shares tips on which side
of a railcar gives you a better photo
opportunity. The round-trip journey
from Cass to Bald Knob takes about
five hours. "It's just a great day,"
says retired carpenter Jim Bolger of
Metamora, Ohio. "I loved the scenery
and just the nostalgia with the old
equipment." -JT

Owen Higgins used the Durbin
Rocket (above) as a shuttle for two
sons and three grandsons, all carrying their fishing poles. The family
came down on one run, planning to
spend a few hours on the Greenbrier
River, then return to Durbin later in
the day. "It's the only way down here,"
says Higgins of Charleston, West
Virginia. "We're down here to enjoy
the day in the river - catch a few bass
and maybe a trout or two." -JT
