Review of Norfolk & Western 611 On Home Rails DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
Visit the lovely mountains of central Virginia as Norfolk & Western 611 charges over the line she was built to serve. Enjoy the action as this giant 4-8-4 steam locomotive pulls heavy passenger trains over Christiansburg Grade and Blue Ridge Grade. These were big trains, and 611 put on a great show as she stormed up the mountain.
611 is a brute of a locomotive and if you are a steam fan, you'll appreciate watching this hard-working locomotive in action.

Highlights include

Roanoke to Walton over Christiansburg Grade
Roanoke to Lynchburg over Blue Ridge Grade
No diesel assistance
Long, heavy trains with great stack talk
Great line side steam action
