THE RETURN OF AN AMERICAN ICON
May 29 – October 3, 2021
The Norfolk & Western Class J 611, a National Historic Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, is known as an engineering powerhouse of steam, technology, and near mechanical perfection.
The N&W Class J 611 is the sole survivor of 14 Class J steam locomotives designed and built by the Norfolk & Western Railway. The locomotive rolled out of Roanoke’s East End Shops in 1950. Its mission was to pull the Powhatan Arrow, a 15-car passenger train, from Norfolk, Virginia, to Cincinnati, Ohio.
In addition to the unique special offerings with No. 611 throughout the event, the historic N&W 611 Class J locomotive pulls DESIGNATED passenger trains ONLY on these following upcoming dates: August 20 – 22; August 27 – 29; September 4 – 6; September 24 – 26; October 2 – 3.
