Out of all my photos of 611 this is my favorite. This was taken by the graveyard at Carpenters, A hot spot for those who railfan Strasburg RR. When you see 611 it's like a torpedo on land thundering down the line blowing her ghost like Hancock 3 chime (It's the one she wore in 1987 and it came from sister engine 610) It's just a wonderful sight. Also there's some cows in the background.

but where does the ghostly whistle echoes back to any passing train?

That's at Carpenter's crossing not far from the graveyard. (It's where this photo was taken funny enough)
