In this action-packed DVD, follow the indomitable #611 pulling famed named trains, “The Pocahontas” and “Powhatan Arrow,” in the 1950s, as well as a tragic wreck that nearly became her undoing.

Then, in the 1980s, stunning aerial photography hovers above cliffs and snakes through hidden hollers deep in the mountains, tracking #611 through West Virginia and Ohio. The streamlined bullet nose ‘J’ Class 4-8-4 engine steps out on one of her rare trips across the summits of the Norfolk and Western main line between Roanoke and Portsmouth.

Finally, in 2015, witness #611 firing back to life once more. See this marvel of precision engineering and striking beauty, the Norfolk & Western #611—the engine rail fans will celebrate forever.

I just viewed N&W 611 and the Class A and they are beyond excellent. The photography is superb. For me it was especially interesting because I am a retired helicopter pilot with experience in aerial photography. The helicopter shots were very well done.
