Moore Keppel Climax #9 at Cass

Link to Photos

Two weekends ago I ventured to Cass, WV to witness the railroad’s Parade of Steam, which was part of West Virginia Day. Free to the public on Saturday; morning viewing of the trains was from the parking lot adjacent to the depot and company store. Five 3-truck geared locomotives were steamed up and running - Shays #2, 4, 5, 11 and Climax #9.

The day before was a private photo-freight charter featuring Moore Keppel #9, with a night photo session afterwards.

Follow the link above to my gallery of images from both days.

Enjoy,
Matthew

Did anyone get access to the shop?  What is the status of the 2 truck Climax, and old sloberface BC&G 2-8-0?   Thanks for posting your excellent mode of the historic site.. It added much to  the posting by other of the action and sound of the event.

Very nice, Matthew.

Do you take your original photos as black and white or do you take color and then change it in post processing?

Rick.

Thank you!
All of these were shot in RAW color, and converted to monochrome afterwards in Photoshop.
