 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Today's image goes back to 2021 in Pennsylvania when I got to see Norfolk & Western locomotive 611 at the Strasburg Railroad.  611 is a gorgeous 4-8-4 locomotive known as the Queen of Steam.  It was on loan for a fund raising trip in PA from the Virginia Museum of Transportation.  It returned home in the latter half of 2023.  I have a short Video of it HERE while it was at the end point of Paradise PA where the locomotive moves around the train to head back to Strasburg.  Locomotives pull the train out backwards from Strasburg as s being shown in the photo for today.


  1. Pretty neat looking "bullet" locomotive. (looks a bit like a bullet...)

    1. Agreed. I think they even call them "bullet nosed" at times.
