Product Information

After two weekends of trips in North Carolina during the month of April, Norfolk & Western J-class 4-8-4 #611 returned home for a reprisal of the popular half-day excursions that were operated out of Roanoke, VA the previous year. These were the only trips of 2016 on home rails, and #611 would climb two of the most famous grades on the N&W each day. In the morning she traveled eastward to Lynchburg, VA - crossing over the Blue Ridge grade in both directions. After returning to Roanoke #611 then pulled a second trip in the afternoon, this time heading west to Walton via the grueling Christiansburg Mountain grade.

But before looking at the 2016 edition of "Blue Ridge and Christiansburg" - this program begins where Volume 3 ends - with #611 in Greensboro, NC after "The Roanoker" trips. First we'll look at the ferry move back to Roanoke on Monday April 25th, as #611 retraces the route of the previous day's excursion. Then we'll cover all 4 half-day trips out of Roanoke on May 7th and 8th, as #611 tackles the steep grades on either side of town. Finally we'll conclude with a look at the ferry move from Roanoke to Manassas, VA on June 1st, as #611 ascends the Blue Ridge grade one more time.

Running without diesel assistance at all times, #611 put on another spectacular show while introducing a whole new generation to Roanoke's finest: the legendary streamlined J-class. With the color position light (CPL) signals being replaced around Roanoke, these trips were likely the last to feature these classic steam-era signals.

Filmed entirely in HD, this program features incredible stack talk as #611 battles the grades around Roanoke. With her thunderous bark and deep mournful whistle, #611 provides a brief glimpse of what the golden age of steam was like on the Norfolk & Western. 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.
