N&W 611
Author: refarkas

Some locations are easy to identify while others are almost impossible. N&W 611 is on one of her first fan trips somewhere in Virginia in early September 1982.

Thanks Bob.  That's a nice sharp photo of 611, and it could be just about anywhere.  She will be in operation next weekend on the Strasburg Rail Road up in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area.  This is so much better than sitting cold in a museum.

As a guess, the location could be between Montvale and Pamplin where the second main has been removed after the 1959 Virginian merger.  The terrain looks to be relatively flat.

Scott Lindsay was a youngster when he headed-up the crew that got 611 up and running...
Well done, Sir!

You never know when a volunteer has the gumption to go on to be a very
   successful locomotive specialist.  Clues: they work hard, they show up for work 
   sessions, they prefer rags, hard work and a hammer, instead of a camera.
  At HICO we were very lucky to have been mentors to so many, who are the 
  experienced "old timers", of today.)

Wes, how right you are.  The ones who can be described with your words today are few.  The vast majority seek the camera and the recognition.  The ones who truly enjoy the hands on and WANT to learn more are deep in the trentches.  They are smart enough to know the tools will teach them well.  There is no prostectic for experience.
