Remarks & Notes 
Hopefully it won't be too much longer before a new generation can actually see N&W 611 in operation. I remember how exited I was to see, photograph and ride behind this great engine in 1982. I remembered them from visits to Bristol in the '50s, and rode behind the 604 on train 41 from Monroe, VA to Bristol in 1957. Here, in October, 1982, we're rolling through a cut, westbound, at North Fork, WV on the Pocahontas Division main line. Is that not one magnificent machine?
