 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Today goes back to Pennsylvania once again.  I was able to see and photograph Norfolk & Western J Class locomotive 611, the Queen of Steam, once again.  I captured it here as it was pulling out of Paradise, the end of the track from Strasburg.  In Paradise it changes from the pulling the back of the train to moving around and pulling from the front back to Strasburg.


  1. Great image! 611 is my favorite steam locomotive, though, I do like them all. I haven't been able to see it running yet since it's current restoration took place.

    1. I think it is mine as well. I got lucky to see it in PA twice now where if it had been at home would probably still not have seen it.
