Shay 5 (The Helper off the Bald Knob Train) Sits on the "Low Line" While Shay 11 Shoves hard on the Whittaker train going up the "High Line". At Cass Scenic Railroad, Cass, WV.
How did you get this shot? I've asked to jump down there before and was declined!
Can't get off the train... You can ride the first Whittaker train up and then hike down from Whittaker to get them meeting. Me I know a fellow at the Whittaker campground and just parked at his camper and hiked up to the lower switchback then the upper.
Ah. I'll have to ask Danny (engineer on Shay 6 now) to let me hop down once if he ever gets assigned to the helper shift.
Danny might if he is pushing. You kinda just got to get lucky there as Shay 6 would need to go down from some unknown reason on a weekend... Might be better to just talk to Brad on 5 or ride the first Whittaker up and hike down for the meet. then hike back up for the second train back down.
It's amazing! The black and white mixing with the color. I enjoy this one quite a bit.
