The cooler temperatures have us in the mood for Christmas! It's crazy to believe our Christmas season is literally only a few weeks away! Don't miss out on the opportunity to be a part of the fun onboard our Cass Scenic Railroad Elf Limited this year! Also, some Polar Express dates in Elkins still remain, too! While fall is a beautiful time of year, the Christmas train season is just around the corner.

Rachel Wellsim in a pickel.... I purchased tickets last year, the DAY they became available.... fast forward to today... I'm currently 33.5 weeks pregnant, due Dec 2, but my babies typically arrive 2 weeks early. I really don't think we are going to be able to make the trip for the Polar express train ride... thank goodness my older children don't know about it. we had also purchased tickets for the dinner. (they were for the 5pm train ride followed by the dinner on Sunday Nov. 26). is there anything that can be done?

“Great train ride!”

Oh boy, where do I start….let me just say ya can’t help but smile when you see the train pulling into the station and you hear that awesome whistle blow, then as it echoes through the valley.

“Almost Heaven – SURE IS!”

Wonderful trip, fun for all, beautiful, and historic ride. The ride was comfortable, the staff knowledgeable, and scenery sublime! I cannot imagine a better way to enjoy a vacation, time with family, and the gorgeous views.

“Loved the railroad”

We rode the Cass Railroad on the Bald Knob excursion. We had a blast! The cars have a guide who will answer all your questions, ours was a young man who had been doing this for 14 years we loved him. It advertised a Hobo Lunch and what we got was much more than anticipated.

“Great way to see the countryside”

We took the shorter 2-hour trip that leaves from Cass station. The open-air cars allowed mountain air and views in from all directions. The tour guide is knowledgeable and narrates history and construction as you climb the mountain to Whittaker Station.
