These locomotives really are working antique relics that offer a glimpse into the past. The experience is unique, the scenery is beautiful and the sounds (while loud, of course) are one of a kind. The steam whistle gives goosebumps and the screech of the wheels...More

This is my 4th trip to Cass since 1974. This was the 3rd time with our 2 children (now 12 & 17). Just driving there was amazement for my kids, enjoying the scenery. The peacefulness of this small, unique old logging town just seeps through...More

We were on a car that had a restroom. I believe you can choose what car you want to be on, and I chose the one with the rest room. Check out the website for more details.
