The magnificent Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 #261 takes charge of the 1994 New River trains between Huntington and Hinton, West Virginia. You will see fast track speed action and magnificent start-ups as 261 hustles 30 cars of ecstatic passengers! Wheel slips abound as 261 grips wet rails. Early morning fog, as well as pouring rain and bright sunshine gives us a good look at this likely once in a lifetime event.
Also seen is the 261′s departure westbound from West Virginia as far as Columbus, Ohio on her way back to the Midwest.
