N&W 611 Passes Boiler Test, Steam Testing Next

Norfolk & Western steam locomotive No. 611 completed last week a federally-mandated hydrostatic boiler test. The 4-8-4 can now undergo steam testing.

The 611 is expected to pull excursions this year as part of the Norfolk Southern 21st Century Steam program.

It is owned by the Virginia Museum of Transportation and is being restored to operating condition at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer.
