Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, USA

Next comes a cool train card from West Virginia (a not so often represented US state on this blog...and this is just my second WV card here, so it does deserve to be shown)

I received this one for the NA x World RR from Angee...lovely card! Angee says that the Cass Railroad dates back to 1901 but that you can still take rides on it.
A ride aboard a Cass steam-driven locomotive is an unforgettable thrill. The park, located in Pocahontas County, offers scenic excursion trips that give train lovers a glimpse of the state's vast Potomac Highland wilderness area. Restored early 1900's Shay, Climax and Heisler engines, pictured here, make Cass Scenic Railroad State Park America's authentic operating museum of lumber railroading.

word of the day: lumber

we have three nice stamps here from which I see the top right one for like the first time....errmm, I think...I don't wanna be mistaken like I was with those Industrial stamps...once mistaken and you start doubting yourself forever and ever :P
It is a FOREVER stamp from this year that commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, which President Abraham Lincoln signed on January 1, 1863.
The stamp next to it is from that beautiful Earthscapes' set issued in 2012...and I guess you are familiar with George Washington's stamp from 2011.
