Remarks & Notes 
The last time N&W 611 would ever climb Saluda Grade. The announcement that the program would end was only had a few weeks before. I was so lucky to be here to capture this.

When you say the word Saluda to some of the most senior members of Norfolk Southern crews and even those who have retired from the railroad, it still brings up images of the steepest grade on a standard gauge line in the United States at 4.24%.
