Product Information

On May 30th 2015, Norfolk & Western J-class 4-8-4 #611 marched triumphantly into Roanoke, VA alive and under steam for the first time in over 20 years. It was the most anticipated steam event of 2015, and thousands upon thousands gathered trackside to see #611 pass by. This homecoming trip capped an improbable rebirth, as few could have imagined the return of #611 when Norfolk Southern pulled the plug on their original steam program in 1994.

This program begins with the May 30th "Return to Roanoke" trip, as 611 returned to the Virginia Museum of Transportation after being restored to operation at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer. Pulling an invitation-only train of donors, volunteers, and NS officials, you'll see #611 on her historic journey home after a year-long restoration.

A week later, #611 would pull her first public excursions out of Manassas, VA. You'll see all 3 Manassas to Riverton Junction (Front Royal) trips as #611 traversed the scenic NS B-line on June 6th and 7th. This program also covers the ferry moves to and from Manassas. On Wednesday June 3rd, #611 climbed the Blue Ridge grade to Lynchburg before heading north to Manassas amidst heavy rain. On Monday June 8th, she returned to Lynchburg on the former Southern mainline under sunny skies.

Filmed entirely in HD, this program features #611 on the mainline with no diesel assistance. You'll see the legendary J-class working hard in the mountains of Virginia, just as the N&W intended when she rolled out of the Roanoke shops in 1950. This program has minimal narration (with the option to turn it on or off) and no distracting music.

In addition to the standard widescreen DVD, this program is also available on HD Blu-ray disc.
