Remarks & Notes 
Original Equipment. Although several of the locomotives in the current Cass stable are transplants, some of which came from as far away as the Pacific Coast, the two that you see here are West Virginia natives and both ran here at Cass during the logging era. On the left, Shay #4 is an 80-ton, Lima C-70 Class that was built for the Birch Valley Lumber Company in 1922, and came to the Mower Lumber Company at Cass in 1943. On the right, Shay #5 is a larger, 90-ton, Lima C-80 Class that was built for the Greenbrier & Elk River in 1905 and has been running here on Cheat Mountain for the last 112 years. Both engines are now in regular service hauling tourists on the present-day Cass Scenic Railroad. They are seen here meeting on the east and main line legs of the wye at MP 9.1, well above the 4,000 foot level on Cass Hill.
