N&W #611 Rides again!

May 21st, 2015

The 65 year old Norfolk & Western J-class 4-8-4 steam locomotive has not run on the rails since December, 1994. However, after a massive rebuild at the shops in Spencer, NC, the #611 hit the mainline again on May 15th for a shakedown. The weather was cold and rainy, but the day turned out great as the smoke flew! Click on this gallery to see all the photos, and the video is here.

New updates again, this photo is one I’ve wanted to take for a little while, usually I’d never catch it at the right time of day to catch the trees silhouetted against the sunset, but managed to catch it a month back or so. Other new updates can be found here!
