Remarks & Notes 
How is it I am so privileged to see this magnificent machine?

The Norfolk & Western J class 4-8-4 No. 611 some will say is the finest passenger steam locomotive of all time. You are looking at a locomotive that possesses 80,0000 lbs of tractive effort, a number that exceeds thousands of freight locomotives. Yet these 70" drivers have made 100MPH for many, many a mile back in the day of N&W passenger service.

Here on the Strasburg short line, timetable speed I have been told is a very modest 20MPH but by employing some photographic slight of hand, we have a hint of those 100MPH days of yore. Thank you No. 611.

Pace and pan shots of trains from on the ground or in the air. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
