The Cheat Mountain Salamander train takes its name from a small, lizard-like amphibian, Plethodon nettingi, which is unique to the forests of Cheat Mountain. It is a rare and shy creature, but is now a protected and much loved symbol of the area. The picture shows the salamander in its natural habitat.
