three locomotives 'race' in
Although this is a staged photo taken during a Cass Railfan Weekend, it provides a great image of three Shay locomotives in action. Shay 6 (left) is on the former passing track and mill siding. Shay 2 (center) is on the Cass Scenic Railroad line that goes up the mountain; Shay 4 is on the station siding. All three tracks were originally on the C&O Greenbrier Division that ran from Ronceverte through Cass to Durbin (and beyond to the now-vanished town of Winterburn). C&O abandoned the line in 1979 and only small sections of active track remain in Cass and Durbin. (Photo by Richard Sparks)
