Don’t miss out on N&W 611 “In Cab Experiences”
Author: NW611

Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to sit in the engineer’s seat and pull open the throttle and feel the power of the 611 at your fingertips?

Maybe being the fireman and controlling the stoker, water level in the boiler and steam pressure is more of your thing?

How about just sitting back on the jump seat and enjoying a cab ride sounds better? 

You can do all of these ”In-Cab Experiences” on the 611 at the Strasburg Rail Road September 30-October 2, 2022! To reserve your spot, visit https://www.strasburgrailroad.com/611-in-cab-experiences/

A portion of proceeds from these events benefit the Virginia Museum of Transportation and support the preservation and maintenance of the Norfolk and Western Class J No. 611.

Nice video.  Like that valve gear motion.  Be amazing at 100mph.

I'll be getting an in cab experience at main line speeds in Poland next week.

Really nice. While I was watching I thought I saw the side rod jump right after starting, and sure enough, on replay I saw the 'jump' and heard it as well. Excellent video and that last segment was really great. That's how it used to be and I did see similar views more than once when I was a kid :-)
