Seldom have all the right components combined to produce the ideal steam locomotive. But in the case of Norfolk & Western's J-class 4-8-4's they did just that! With a massive firebox, marvelous boiler, perfectly balanced running gear and stylish streamlining, the elements combined to produce the 611, a designated National Engineering Landmark. The 611 thrilled us for a dozen years with awesome sights and sounds resurrected from the Great Age of Steam Railroading. In this video, all the right ingredients combined to produce a stunning videos tribute to this majestic steam locomotive. Crisp camera views of smoke-filled runbys, dramatic pacing and pan shots, cab rides and an engaging story line come together to create a fantastic video of the 611's last trip. This 56 minute, tightly-edited video is to railroad video what the 611 herself has been to steam railroading. The best in the class.
