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.

Highlights include

 

  • Roanoke to Walton over Christiansburg Grade
  • Roanoke to Lynchburg over Blue Ridge Grade
  • No diesel assistance
  • Long, heavy trains with great stack talk

    Shot on Memorial day weekend of 2017, 611 has what it takes to be one of every railfan’s favorite mainline giant. Now here’s an unexpected Surprise. This 2018 program was the Very first time since Colorado’s Scenic Train Rides from 2000 to have Music By Mike Lynch who unfortunately Died in January of ‘18 Along with the Original GSVP Narrator John Edward Hingsbergen. Mike’s Scores from America By Rail The Heartland in 1994 was used for this program. These Trips would mark one of 611’s final mainline speed journeys Due to one of Amtrak’s worst President Dick Anderson creating the No Steam Giants Allowed Policy along with 4449, 765, 261, 3751, 630, 4501, Santa Fe 2926, C&O 2716, NC&STL 576 and of course 611. The informative narration from Les Jarrett himself is interesting as well as the sounds of the post WWII built J class northern itself.
