Fire Up 611!

Train Tuesdays

The Virginia Museum of Transportation’s Fire Up 611 campaign’s goal is to restore the famous Norfolk and Western J class locomotive number 611 for steam excursion service and to also build a maintenance facility. If they meet their fundraising goal by October 31st, 611 can participate in Norfolk Southern’s 21st Century Steam program next year!

If you are fan of live steam and historic preservation, please consider donating to this cause. Last week I made a small donation.

Here are a couple pictures I scanned a couple of 611 pictures from her last career. I can’t wait to see her running again!
