It's all hands on deck for the hostlers and engine helpers of N&W Class J #611 on the evening of May 1st, 2021. This locomotive even after a long day of running across the N&W system will need to be turned around in short order since the Class Js and their railroad are all about efficiency. Equipped with roller bearing rods and roller bearings on all of her axles the Class Js were designed to be serviced quickly. While this is actually a shot as part of a night photo charter hosted by the North Carolina Transportation Museum, the Class Js have a record of service that is hard to beat for any passenger locomotive. By the time the Class Js were retired from active service for the N&W in the late 1950s, many of them had recorded over 1,000,000 miles across the N&W system and on average racked up 15,000 miles a month.
