while i've said that the third vol. was the only video of the reborn series i own i was looking about the others and the one that caught my attention was this one and i'm glad it did n&w 611 reborn vol.5 follows norfolk & western class j northern 611 on two weekends of trips in late April and late may 2017 (this video is also the final installment of the reborn series) the coverage starts with the ferry move from the nc transportation museum in Spencer to Greensboro north Carolina on April 21st than the action starts with the Greensboro to Roanoke trips on apirl 22nd and 23rd (which were covered in the third vol) as 611 handled a 20 car passenger train on the former southern and Virginian mainlines with stubborn rain than the video looks at the roanoke trips over the memorial day holiday weekend with 611 on the n&w mainline with the climb over both the blue ridge grade and christiansburg mountain my favorite parts of the roanoke trips are 611 racing a stack train bob saxton as the engineer of the last trip of the year (he was a engineer during the old ns steam program) and a shot with 611 backing up past the Virginia museum of transportation (with class a 1218 and y6a 2156 on display) glad i bought this and i liked as much as i did with the third vol hope to where 611's future will take on amtrak in the future
