   Introduction

This page is dedicated to Cass Scenic Railroad and Philip V. Bagdon. Cass, one of the smartest saves that any one state could have made. It's not only a tourist railroad, but it is a living monument to the days of steam, logging,  and our past. To Philip, whom passed in 2003, by far the most knowledgeable name in Cass history since Catty Neighbors .

 

It is not just a loop or a little five mile stretch of track in the middle of no where, this is a true ex-logging railroad that was built at the turn of the Century. The scenic railroad will guide you up a average 5% grade once called Cass Hill to Whittaker station, then just a pasture, where a railroad section camp was placed to house immigrant workers from 1901 to the 1930's. Then, if you choose, it will take you to Bald Knob, where a real logging camp was placed in 1901.
