Norfolk & Western J #611 poses at the night photo session in Spencer, NC. 5/28/15.
I forgot. They got this engine back up and running again. Also, this photo is great.
Fantastic view during the night!
Wow, the night light reveals how dirty she really is. She needs a good rub down, and maybe a fresh coat of paint. The area between her pilot and bullet nose also ssems a bit dented, but I'm not sure if that can be fixed so easily.
I normally don't mind a little soot... But... It's 611... And... It doesn't look right...
The light really exposed the soot!
It looks beautiful at night.
Good 'ol soot!
Awesome! Looks like the kind of scene O. Winston Link would have shot back in the 1950s.
