Visit the lovely mountains of central Virginia as Norfolk & Western 611 charges over the line she was built to serve. Enjoy the action as this giant 4-8-4 steam locomotive pulls heavy passenger trains over Christiansburg Grade and Blue Ridge Grade. These were big trains, and 611 put on a great show as she stormed up the mountain.
611 is a brute of a locomotive and if you are a steam fan, you’ll appreciate watching this hard-working locomotive in action.
