Remarks & Notes 
About a mile south of the control point of Green, the south end of double track stretch on Washington-Atlanta main line of the former Southern, N&W 611 lays out some awesome sound with her chime Hancock whistle. The big 4-8-4 has 17 cars plus a "canteen" (N&W's term for an auxiliary water tender) on her drawbar. In the rear car--the Buena Vista--Wick Moorman is looking back at the throngs of people out to see this apparition of the past roll by. Without his vision, passion, and support, this moment would have never happened.
