Description

The most powerful 4-8-4s to run for any railroad, and one of the finest steam locomotive designs ever produced, the N&W J’s combined large cylinders, high steam pressure, and low drivers to generate a impressive tractive effort of 80,000 lb. Automatic lubrication at over 200 points and Timken roller bearings everywhere (axles, main & side rods, valve gear, wrist pins) permitted 15,000-mile per month & 1.5 year intervals between shop visits. After the N&W dieselized in the late 1950s, it became difficult for the N&W to find replacement parts for their relatively new steam fleet. So ultimately steam began to disappear on the N&W. In 1982, the N&W returned #611 to excursion service, which she operated until 1994. In 2013, a Fire Up 611! campaign was formed, which successfully raised enough money to restore the 611. She was steamed up once again in March of 2015 and has been operating in excursion service ever since.

Today: #611 is the only surviving J of the (15) built, thanks to a major derailment 1956 that resulted in a complete overhaul, leaving her in pristine condition.

#611 is now on display and occasionally operated by the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, VA
