      The Scenic Route to MN, Day Five

      A travel blog entry by wheelerlj on Aug 21, 2014

      ... br> The Climax is one of three known to still exist in the whole world; another is under restoration at the Cass RR, about which Linda wrote yesterday. The Climax design sports a single piston on each side of the boiler, mounted diagonally, with the force transferred thru a series of gears to two trucks under the firebox-and-boiler and two more under the (integral) tender. The wheels are small -- maybe 18 - 20 inches in diameter -- which ...

      ... rail, sleepers and roadbed that will support a "track speed" (speed limit) of perhaps 40-50 mph (FWIW, many -- perhaps 'most'.scenic operations run in the 7 - 15 mph range). Then the plan is reputed to be reconnecting a final leg -- an old WVRR or C&O line between Durbin and Elkins, which makes for a 90 mile loop; and possibly, a revival of some freight service.

      First, a short drive to Cass to see the Cass Scenic Railroad -- one of the reasons for coming this far south on the way to Minnesota. We took pictures of the train in the station, then asked if the train's route crossed the road anywhere where we might be able to get pictures. following the helpful directions, we drove along a beautiful ...

      ... road and got shots as the train passed two road crossings. Then back to the station to explore the rolling stock, the gift shop and the "gallery" -- a shop filled with the work of local artisans. The items for sale there included jewelry, pottery, brooms, quilts, and a dulcimer. Very interesting work and a really nice volunteer (one of the quilters) manning the shop.

      Before we went out again to chase the next train, we asked for more information, and ...

      ... Then Thursday we'll come back and see what the Durbin RR has to offer.

      for now, I've gotten onto FB and managed to tell several people that we have very little communication, so I'm feeling a little less cut off than I was an hour ago.
