Seldom have all the "right" components combined to produce the ideal steam locomotive. But in the case of Norfolk & Western's J-class 4-8-4's they did just that! With a massive firebox, marvelous boiler, perfectly balanced running gear and stylish streamlining, the elements combined to produce the 611, a designated National Engineering Landmark. The 611 thrilled us for a dozen years with awesome sights and sounds resurrected from the Great Age of Steam Railroading. In this video, all the right ingredients combined to produce a stunning videos tribute to this majestic steam locomotive. Crisp camera views of smoke-filled runbys, dramatic pacing and pan shots, cab rides and an engaging story line come together to create a fantastic video of the 611's last trip. This 56 minute, tightly-edited video is to railroad video what the 611 herself has been to steam railroading. The best in the class.

Great amounts of footage of N&W 611 even though 1994 was her last year. This video shows her first break in runs in 1982 at the Norris Yard shop in Birmingham, Alabama and that same year, Roanoke, Virginia celebrated 100 years as a city. Oddly, 611 didn�t pulled a matched set of Tucson red Norfolk Southern cars until late in her career as queen of steam. The rest of the video shows her working hard from Birmingham, Alabama to Chattanooga, Tennessee from March 28, 1992 all the way to her last excursion run on December 3, 1994 when Norfolk Southern decided to close down their steam operations after 28 wonderful years (1966-1994).
