In 1994 the Norfolk Southern steam program was terminated and Class J, 4-8-4 # 611 may never operate again. However,
our video will document some of the last runs of this magnificent steam locomotive as it steams through southern Ohio
and Northern Kentucky between 1992 and 1994. You'll 611 work hard on the steep grades such as Erlanger Hill just south
of Cincinnati in northern Kentucky, plus the steep grades at Batavia, Peebles and Seaman on the Cincinnati to Portsmouth line.
We'll see many different excursion trains, plus some one-way moves that includes a short freight train pulled by 611.
There are also scenes of 611 being turned on the Portsmouth wye, for the last time, and pacing shots along side 611 on
the Portsmouth to Columbus line. We videotaped steam in these areas many times so you can be sure we captured the best
locations to show 611 working hard and providing a good show. There is also a special guest visitor on the tape that we
will leave as a surprise to those who purchase this tape. The jacket art shows 611 going away as it approaches the Southern
Bridge in Cincinnati by Cincinnati artist John Maggard. Great steam action throughout this collectors edition will provide
a lifetime of pleasure and "Memories of Norfolk and Western 611".
