Steam in the mountains

N&W 611 tackles the Southern loops just West of Old Fort Nc. October, 1992
Great shot. I was able to ride behind her in '91. Sorry she doesn't run any longer.
Great shot! Wish I had been here to see the real deal.
Awesome, Gosh I miss seeing her run excursions. These oil fired beasts out west don't have the experience of the cinders in the hair and the acrid smell of the coal burning. Let alone the pinnacle of steam technology that the J represented.
I hope she is being well taken care of Roanoke so she may live again someday if somebody can organize it again.
