Remarks & Notes 
Race ya to the water tower! Three of the Cass Scenic Railroad's four operable steam locomotives participate in the annual "Great Locomotive Race" at the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association's annual Railfan Weekend. The contestants this year were the former Meadow River Heisler #6 (seen here in the lead), Western Maryland Shay #6 (putting on a top-end charge), and the former Mower Shay #4 (lagging behind with a freight train.) The only other operable engine that was hot during this event was Mower Shay #5, which was held in reserve back at the shop building.

The Cass Scenic Railroad actually has three other engines, besides the 4 already mentioned here. All of them are in heavy maintenance. Shay #11, a former Feather River Engine, is awaiting a 1472-day inspection. Shay #2, a Pacific Coast model, is nearing the end of a complete overhaul/rebuild, which has been going on for about 7 years. Finally, Climax #6, a former Moore-Keppel Engine, is nearing the end of a complete restoration, which has been underway for over 10 years.
