Crossing the Roanoke river near Wabun, Va., Norfolk & Western J-Class No. 611 leads its final excursion of the weekend back east toward Roanoke from Salem on original Norfolk & Western mainline. In the background, camouflaged by spring foliage, the Virginian Railway's bridge is visible - still used by Norfolk Southern today, as well.
