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.

Departing Jacksonville, Florida in the cab of N&W 611. 1986 excursion of the "Suwanee Steam Special" in the cab during a brake test and departure. Part one of two. Be sure to watch part two, featuring faster running on the mainline towards Valdosta, GA and the Florida/Georgia state line.





611 Vs Irondale Hill.wmv
The time was the fall of 1992. A chase of 611 had to be scrubbed at the last minute. It seemed a huge disappointment at the time. Butr I did have time for a couple of shots, so this time I looked for locations athat were not consideder by me to be easy chase locations-that were not as quick to get out of as the ones I used when setting up along HWY 11. WHat the camera captured that day was the most compelling bit of steam action I have ever recorded, with 611 fighting for every inch of the long climb from downtown. A later shot was done in Trussville. In both cases, the camera is left on longer than usual to record the sounds of 611 in the distance. It appears Goodheart Productions was just down the bridge from me, as similar footage appears in "611 Birmingham Memories"!
