Review of Norfolk & Western 611 - Pennsylvania & Virginia DVD

Norfolk & Western 611 – Pennsylvania & Virginia; Follows the J's last public mainline excursions on Memorial Day weekend in 2017 out of Roanoke, a Lynchburg to Petersburg roundtrip in May 2017, and her historic trip to the Strasburg Railroad in Autumn 2019.

We will spend two days with the J in Roanoke, VA as she pulls the popular half-day excursions to Lynchburg via Blue Ridge Summit, and Walton via Christiansburg Grade. Then head east to Lynchburg for a round-trip in the foothills to Petersburg, then finally we will spend a day with the J and 4-8-0 M Class #475, (masquerading as N&W #382), on a photo freight charter at the Strasburg Railroad.
