N&W 611 Reborn Vol 3 - Year 2 North Carolina Trips DVD5 of 5 (1)
2015 was a milestone year, as Norfolk & Western J-class 4-8-4 #611 returned to steam for the first time in over 20 years. After a triumphant homecoming trip on May 30th, #611 operated 3 weekends of highly successful excursions during June and July before being put back on display at the Virginia Museum of Transportation for the rest of 2015. In the early days of 2016, it was announced that #611 would return to Norfolk Southern for 4 more weekends of trips during the spring months, despite the end of the NS "21st Century Steam Program" in 2015.
