611: The Final Excursion

611: The Final Excursion
Click to view back cover

This program preserves the final chapter in the operating history of Norfolk & Western 4-8-4 J Class locomotive No. 611. Norfolk Southern announced the end of its steam program, effective with the final excursion of 611 on December 3, 1994. That cold Fall day afforded spectacular scenes of 611 steaming from Birmingham, AL through hills and valleys to Chattanooga, TN. Two days later 611 left for her "ferry trip" to Roanoke. See all the action of her last five days under steam, including her arrival in Roanoke flying black flags. Read the poignant inscription on her cab: "I am the thoroughbred of steam- Born to run- Born to be free- Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do!" No other streamlined steam locomotive can match the sheer power and excitement of the 611, with her throaty whistle and coal-fired smoke. Enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful lady of the South over and over again on this DVD, because this is the final excursion! This DVD program features Hi-Fi audio with limited narration, and is packaged in a durable plastic library case with a full color cover.
