Whittaker Station

Whittaker Station is located four miles up the track from Cass. At Whittaker Station you have the opportunity to leave the train and enjoy a breathtaking view of a vast wilderness area. Visitors can rest, eat lunch, and take a tour of the authentic logging camp recreated by the volunteers of the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association.

In 2013, paved trails were added to the logging camp exhibits, restrooms and concession stand creating access for all passengers on the Cass Scenic Railroad. 

Volunteers with the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association are restoring historic logging equipment at Whittaker Station. This is part of the Whittaker Camp One exhibit, a recreated logging camp of the 1940's which shows both the living quarters and the tools of the loggers. The centerpiece of Camp One is a Lidgerwood tower skidder, one of only two examples left in the world. These huge railcar-mounted machines carried logs out of the woods on aerial cables high in the air and for distances up to 3,000 feet.

Note:  Purchase of a regular ticket does not guarantee a seat.  The ride may require standing for all or part of the time involved, particularly on busier days and during the fall season.
