Cass Railroad extravaganza(Image Heavy)

Just got back from a three day event : Railfan 2011 in Cass West virginia . Best railroad I have ever been to. These locomotives are all wheel drive Shays which are designed as the workhorses in the lumber camps of West Virginia . They will climb grades of 13% or more . They did a bunch of photo runbys for us some , up on the mountain which is as high as 5,000 feet ! One of the HDR s is Seneca Rock in west Virginia , One is the old sawmill which burned , suspected arosn . At peak it cranked out 8 train car loads of finished lumber a day a day . Imagine cutting that all with a two man crosscut and dragging it out from as much as 1,000 down in a ravine with a steam donkey . Also one HDR is a diesel which was a high tech upgrade ! Enjoy [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img] [img][/img]

A government that doesn't trust it's law abidding citizens to bear arms is unworthy of trust itself.
