Steam Saturday: N&W 611 in Orrville

Norfolk & Western J Class No. 611 is arguably best known today for its excursion service for Norfolk Southern than it was for revenue service for the N&W.

It pulled many a steam excursion through Ohio and other states during its prime.

In the photograph above, the 4-8-4 Northern type is westbound on the former Wheeling & Lake Erie at Orrville on May 13, 1989.

It was making a one way move from Kenovah, West Virginia, to Bellevue.
