One of the most famous fantrip engines of the 80's and 90's was Norfolk and Western Class J number 611. Now in 2014-15 it is being restored to operation once again. So, lets turn back the clock to the first restoration in the early 80's and see the action of 611 in 1982 and 1983. First we see the finishing touches on the engine at Birmingham, before the train heads east on the Southern Mainline for a trip to Roanoke.

This dvd marks the first time that 611 was in its first excursion service, & according to the time period, it was the final time that Greg used his Super 8 Sound film camera before getting a Pentax 6x7 video camera and beginning the business. 611's whistle was good, and there are 3 previews that have something to do with 611. Memories of N&W 611 (2005 version), norfolk southern steam volume 1, & the new N&W in transition.

There is no such thing as a "Pentax 6x7 video camera ". That camera is a ordinary SLR still picture film camera.

Sorry. I just saw an interview from TVD to Greg about his business and his favorites. I didn't know there was a panasonic supertube that he used only in the 1980's. besides, if you still own the 1985-1988 back issues of both TRAINS and Railfan & Railroad Magazines, You'll wonder why these titles back then are scrapped. Except for the South African Steam Collection, & 614 Coal Trains, which have been re-edited ever since.
