    Well, I guess that does it for me then. I hope that those who do enjoy seeing the old iron up and running enjoyed some of the pics as much as I enjoyed sharing them. peace out.

    An EMD BL-2 diesel operated by DGVR. This is indeed a very rare locomotive, there are 7 known survivors, and this one may be the only operating example. Built in 1948, this is a sister to the WM-81 that is currently residing at the B&O railroad museum.

    Doubleheader Shays under load, quite a view and an even better sound.

    Shay #5 at the water tower with #4 sneaking in its headlight and plate number through the tower supports. Shays 2, 4, & 5 with two GP-9s on the siding. Shays 2, 4, & 5 with the depot and Cass Country Store in the background.

    Was looking through some more of the pictures and came across these. Shay 7. A better shot of the Buffalo Creek and Gauley #4, hopefully waiting for restoration.

    I’m eclectic I guess? :laughing: And no use letting political differences get in the way of a great discussion of unrelated shared interests! :cheers:

    A couple more tunnel shots, then back to the trains, lol. This is a smaller tunnel on the same line. The work put into this line at the time was something for sure. There is another somewhat larger tunnel similar to this that I need to shoot this year if I remember, I don't see that I have a...

    Great views though. Overlooking river from the bridge.

    Same perspective, taken in 2019, 8 years later than the above. Sadly the walkway is need of some repairs.

    A shot of the trestle immediately after exiting tunnel. Looking back at tunnel.

    This tunnel was completed in 1930, as seen by the engraving above the tunnel entrance in pic 2. This one is still open however, and leads to a trestle that was also completed in the 29-31 time frame, The RZR sounded pretty good echoing through the tunnel....

    A few more of the inside. Can see why it's been condemned. This tunnel unfortunately may not survive much longer, and there's probably not much of a chance of it being repaired. Standing above the tunnel entrance. And overlooking it.

    A few tunnel pics. Both of these and the line were completed between 1929 and 1931, taking around 3 years to construct. This tunnel was shut down by the National Park Service to traffic due to concerns of collapse in 2011, the year after these were taken. The tunnel is still open however...

    Hopefully this state will embrace that though. I had started following the Cass news in 2017, a couple years after operations were taken from the state and handed to a private company (though the state owns the equipment and line and such). There were some warranted concerns, some hard...

    Yea, had read that too somewhere, but the UP steam email was so touting the success of the 4014 restoration and inaugural outing, how it had drawn in over 1 million visitors to see it and such. Even if it was just for a few photo specials per year or something, I’d think it could be a big...

    The offical trains thread.

    Yea, I didn’t even like the email wording, just so dismissive and matter of fact. “We’ve given up on 3985, we don’t even know what we’re going to do with it, it is what it is, deal with it.” An 884, 3985, 4014 triple header would be astonishing sight to see, shame they can’t see that vision.

    Thanks all, glad y’all are enjoying them. There’s some more things left for me to show, and have already received word of the 2020 photo special coming at the end of this year, so hopefully some good things to come too.
