Remarks & Notes 
Cass Depot, ca 1948. With the day's operations shut down several hours ago and the locomotive fires banked, a couple of Mower Lumber Co. night hostlers chat on the empty platform of the old depot on the C&O Durbin Branch at MP 80.7. Depicted behind the two men are Mower Shays 4 & 5, which were in operation right up until the end of lumbering operations in 1960. Shay #5 is the older of the two, and was built for this railroad in 1905, and has never left the property. The depot you see today was built in the 1970s, replacing a structure that existed from 1923, until it was destroyed by fire in 1975. The new depot retains the styling of the original C&O Depot, which stood until 1923, but is larger than the original, retaining the size of the more modern structure that it replaced in the 1970s.
