NW #611 visits Spencer NC Transportation Museum
Author: kschmidt626

I had the chance to make a quick trip to Spencer, NC and the North Carolina Transportation Museum.  #611 was doing some running featuring throttle time, fireman time and caboose rides.  The weather was great.  I also took part in a night photo session that featured some Christmas shots with Santa Claus.  It was a great day with the Queen of Steam.  

Shot #1  #611 making a caboose run south at the Museum.  These runs were part of the Throttle Time and Fireman Time runs.  
Shot #2  The guest engineer doing a great job
Shot #3  Final shot from the Caboose Runs.  The Queen was looking fine.

There were some diesels that also were in and out and busy at Spencer. It was a busy weekend at the museum.  It was a Boy Scout weekend so the parking lot area was full of tents and Scouts.  Plus the regular train made several runs.  

Shot #4 N&W #620 leads the regular train full of scouts
Shot #5 H10-44 ? coming off the turntable 
Shot #6 Southern #2601 GP30 spinning around

There was also a night photo featuring #611.  Many of the shots also featured Santa.  Things went very well.  Thanks to everyone at the museum and those that helped with the night session.  

The final shot has the crew asking Santa for coal.  Nice twist on the coal for Christmas theme.  

Just a few more from the night session.
