The largest operating steam engine in the United States at the time, ex-Reading Railroad's No. 2102, pulled the trips over the C&O Greenbrier Division from Ronceverte to Durbin and return, stopping in Cass where the majority of passengers got off to ride the Cass train to Whittaker and tour the town. Over three hundred railfans from thirty two states rode the initial trip. The Greenbrier Scenic Railroad tours continued through 1974, using C&O GP9 diesels for their last two seasons.
