Remarks & Notes 
Almost there... Western Maryland Shay #6 storms past a little-used emergency water stop as she hauls her log train up the last half mile to the summit of Bald Knob. This is probably Carl Franz's favorite photo spot on the entire railroad at Cass and there is not much question as to why. The terrain offers a commanding view of the trains climbing the hill and the southeast bearing of this stretch means it is one of the few spots where there is any nose-light on the locomotives. And oh yes, there's an industrious colony of beavers living here that seem to come out of hibernation early in May of each year and they've pretty much taken care of any vegitative obstructions.
