Through The Lens 128 – N&W 611 Roanoke Mornings Posted on May 25, 2018 by Michael Summers N&W 611 pulls into the station on the final morning of her 2017 Excursion Season. Hopefully this sight will return in the future. Share this:ShareTwitterFacebookEmail
Oh, what a beautiful morning we had in Roanoke in May of 2017! And what a thrill to see the locomotive in her hometown, with some of the old Norfolk & Western buildings still there for her to dust with cinders (among them, the railroad’s headquarters, on the far left in Michael’s photo above, now converted into apartments).
For the photo I made at that moment (you can see me in the right foreground in Michael’s photo), visit https://www.wheresteamlives.net/railroad-landscapes?lightbox=dataItem-j9tblc6t.
Beautiful morning indeed! I’m still hopeful that we will get to see this scene again.
