    The Cass Scenic railroad in Cass, West Virginia was once a logging railroad owned and operated by the Mower Lumber Company. The line as originally built by the West Virginia spruce Lumber Company in the early 1900s and ran from Cass, to Bald Knob via the now abandoned town of Spruce. The Mower Lumber Company acquired the line in the early 1940s, and continued operations until 1960. The line was then opened to tourists in the mid 60s and continues to operate today. During it's early years of operation, the Cass Scenic Railroad operated a stretch of track called the Durbin Line, which ran from Cass to Durbin along the Greenbrier river, however, due to severe weather most of the Durbin Line was washed out. At the time of writing this a large portion of the Durbin Line has been rebuilt. The motive power on the Cass Scenic Railroad consists of geared steam locomotives built specifically for logging purposes. Shay locomotives #2, 4, 5, 6, and 11 are in operation as well as Heisler #6. The railroad is also restoring climax locomotive #9 to operation as well. In my opinion, the Cass Scenic Railroad would make a great addition to Train Simulator as well as the Unique locomotives that operate on it.
