Shay Logging Locomotives At Cass, West Virginia, 1900-60

Philip Bagdon

With eighty-six vintage photographs, Shay Logging Locomotives takes a historic look back into the wild heart of West Virginia, when a magnificent fleet of geared steam locomotives served the region’s paper and lumber industry. Today the scenic railroad at Cass is a gem of our national heritage. Hailed as one of Appalachia’s largest and longest operating lines, this book examines the use of the Shay engines as they met the grueling demands of timbering and shaped the line’s success.
