Norfolk & Western 611 - 2016/2017
A Norfolk & Western 4-8-4 on Memorial Day weekend, crossing Roanoke, Greensboro and Asheville & Lynchburg. Just some of the scenes that make this Norfolk & Western 611 series so great to watch. The series shows the #611, built in 1950, crossing the rails her ancestors have been riding since WWII. Nowadays, the great steam locomotive gets used solely for the purpose of excursions, and for those not able to make it to Virginia, this recording of the N&W #611 in action is a great way to experience what this piece of machinery has to offer.
