Mike McDade of Portland, Ore., shares this Washington Post video of the restored Norfolk and Western No. 611 steam locomotive now in operation in Roanoke, Va. Mike and his wife, Cathi, hoped to see the train in operation during a recent visit to Virginia, but missed the opportunity by mere minutes.
The baritone whistle of Norfolk and Western No. 611 drifts through the Virginia countryside, announcing the shiny black steam locomotive is back, hauling passengers once again. - http://wapo.st/1QErpz8
