Norfolk and Western 611

Chasing the 611 on its run from Chicago to Fort Wayne, IN and back in 1994. I did not know at that time the steam program was going to end, but the 611's crew did! See if you think they were going over 40 mph on this day.

N&W 611 pulls the final excursion over the N&W Peavine Line. Both the engine and the railroad are out of service. Includes one scene from the next day's run to Danville, KY. Anyone who wants to see the 611 run again should visit and donate money to their cause.

Norfolk & Western "Class J" 4-8-4 by Bachmann
Finally, I got around to filming a review of this beautiful locomotive. It is a Norfolk and Western "Class J" 4-8-4. My brother and I bought this in a brilliant shop called M.B. Kleins back in 2009, near Baltimore. It runs really well, but we've had a few problems getting it to pull trains, and turn corners. It also has a very low riding pilot, which causes it to jam on the rails sometimes... Enjoy! You may see more of her in the future...
