Railroad Art
The first year 611 was restored for excursion service was 1982. This shot was made with a Pentax 6 x 7 color negative, and an 8 x 10 color transparency was made to hold the quality before making the print. The scene is a small trestle at Wabun, Virginia in October of 1982 as 611 makes a one-way trip to Bluefield from Roanoke, Virginia. This is the old swimming hole as a rope swinging from a tree limb is noticeable in the lower left corner. The classic lines of the N&W 4-8-4 are accented with some fall colors of the Virginia Hills a few miles west of Salem. This image was also featured in a book sold by the steam program on the trains called "Steam Spirit". 611 was retired a second time in late 1994 and resides in the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke.
