Remarks & Notes 
N&W #611 highballs through Bedford, VA in a zoom pan captured at 1/15th on sunny Saturday morning, July 4th, 2015.

Things panned out pretty well during my first ever chase of Norfolk & Western's iconic bullet nosed streamlined steam engine. Having captured a standard pan the day prior, I decided to go for broke and take the risk the next day for a zoom pan captured during one of the few breaks in the weather offered on an otherwise dreary weekend to capture the bullet in action - what, I wasn't? Lol! Enjoy!

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
