2019 Rail Heritage Weekend at Durbin and Cass, WV
More information about the special event is available at the following link: >>> http://mountainrailwv.com/tour/rail-heritage-weekend/ <<<
The following is from a post on the Durbin and Greenbrier Valley Railroad's Facebook Page regarding this event:
The Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad’s Cass Scenic Railroad will highlight the completion of its Cass-Durbin track rehabilitation project and the steam restoration of Middle Fork Climax No. 9 with a special three-day rail heritage event on September 6 to 8, 2019.
The three-day event will feature two full days of photo runbys and photographic opportunities between Durbin and Cass. On Sunday morning, pending a successful reassembly and no unforeseen circumstances, DGVR will feature Middle Fork Climax No. 9 in Cass with a photo freight consist.
“We will incorporate a special photo opportunity with the Shays, Heisler No. 6, and the Middle Fork Climax during the Sunday event,” says Durbin & Greenbrier Business Development Manager Chase Gunnoe.
As progress is made, we will be relaying those updates to all patrons and our followers through our digital platforms. Detailed itineraries about the event will be mailed in the spring.
In 2018, the railroad’s first-ever Rail Heritage Weekend in May brought more than 100 photographers to Cass over three days. The revenues generated from the event were reinvested in preservation projects at Cass. Those funds are helping recreate additional events – just like the September 2019 Rail Heritage Weekend.
More details will be released soon and we look forward to sharing the exciting news with a fan base that is just as enthusiastic as we are about the things happening here in West Virginia!
