I can never get too much Cass Railroad. I love those Shays! The locomotives and the park are truly national treasures. Thanks for making the video. I'm looking forward to the release of the DVD.

I've played this twice already. Great way to start the day! Just love how the officer nods to other drivers (presumably), watches until they're out of sight, and resumes the jam. He's loving life! Stay safe out there.

I love the sound of the whistles as they echo off the mountains! I just love Cass. I hope I can do the 2015 Railfan weekend, and/or the fall photography workshop. Thanks for sharing this!

Thanks for the info. There has been NO further publication of this handover, which sadly, does not speak well for either the state or the owner(s) of D&GV. I have enjoyed the rides on the D&GV, but this lack of transparency is worrisome. I can only hope that the owner(s) truly recognize the worth of CSR, that CSR is world-renowned and a diamond in the crown of West Virginia. Alas, when "private enterprise" rears its head, I lose faith. I hope this handover doesn't herald the beginning of the end for CSR.

We have this very mower, and when I went to cut the grass yesterday it started and cut off repeatedly. I just gave up. Granted, we haven't taken very good care of it, so it's long overdue for a tune up. I told my husband - who is away - about it, and he said for me not to worry about it because 1) I have no patience and 2) I don't know anything about engines. Talk about throwing down the gauntlet! I WILL get this puppy going smoothly. Thanks so much for the video. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Well, unless you are leaking a lot of fuel then that would not affect the power as much. What about the spark plug you put in? Was it the correct one and same size? Also check the air filter and to make sure it is breathing good.  The loss of power will happen if you are not getting the right amount of fuel, the piston is not firing, and the engine is not breathing.  Also, check your throttle cable and where it attaches. To give it more power you can pull on it down by the carb, not just by the handle. hope some of that helps. let me know, thanks

Very nice. I haven't ridden Mountain Thunder yet, hopefully next year! It'll be hard to tear me away from my beloved Cass though. :)

Honey, 96 was a hell of a run. What you said resonates so deeply with me. I spent the entire day with Dad, the day he died in the evening after I had gone home. Lots of relatives came through that day, but I sat with him while Mom and my sister could deal with relatives downstairs. Dad was fairly lucid almost to the end. He relived being in jazz clubs as a serviceman in WWII. It was an extraordinary experience, which I will forever cherish.

Larry, you are a gift. I thank God you are a nurse, because that suits your deep compassion. Thanks for this video.
