The Cass Scenic Railroad is excited to combine its popular Father’s Day Weekend cookout at Whittaker with a new venue embracing the Cass Scenic Railroad’s logging past and our love and appreciation for West Virginia history. Join us on the evening of Saturday, June 15 for our Wild ‘N Wonderful Father’s Day Weekend at Whittaker. This special event will include a 5:00pm departure from Cass depot where you will travel through two switchbacks, and into several S-curves before arriving at the former logging campsite of Whittaker Station. You’ll enjoy a fresh, historically-inspired Loggers Dinner, including ham, sweet potatoes, assorted vegetables, fresh bread, and homemade pies. This special dinner meal is inspired by the dinners once prepared by the original loggers who worked and lived on these very mountains. In addition to the cookout, you will have the opportunity to enjoy live bluegrass music, games, and an extended evening layover at Whittaker. This venue will also compliment an exciting schedule of interpretive events at the nearby Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. Join us for logging history, good food, and trains as you travel to Cass on Saturday, June 15 for this 3.5-hour adventure.
