Deep in the Appalachian spine of West Virginia lies the small town of Cass, home to the world-famous Cass Scenic Railroad. The railroad is home to the world's largest collection of geared Shay steam locomotives, three of which we witness in operation on the CSRR, along with geared Heisler steam locomotive #6 on the railroad's Whittaker Trips. Then we go for a ride as Western Maryland Railway "Big 6" brings us to Bald Knob, one of the highest points in West Virginia.
