The Big Six
This is the story of the largest Shay in the world,
Western Maryland Shay #6.
Rescued from static display in the B&O MUseum in Baltimore, WM 6 is now the Queen of the Cass Scenic Railroad’s locomotive fleet.
You’ll ride along as she handles a freight train from Cass to Durbin, WV on the Greenbrier Branch.
You’ll ride in the cab with the engineer and in the caboose with the conductor.
You will watch her go by from lineside and pace her from ahead in this beautiful display of a big Shay at work.
We’ll also go up the mountain to Bald Knob with doubleheaded Shays on a foggy day on Cheat Mountain.
