Remarks & Notes 
N&W 611 rolls down the former Southern Railway mainline, leading the southbound return portion of an excursion between Spencer, NC and Lynchburg, VA. Behind the auxiliary water car, NS SD40-2 6110 is along for the ride, helping the J to conserve coal on the 300+ mile round trip journey.

Mainline steam trips were absent from the Southeast US from 1994 until 2011, when Norfolk Southern began allowing limited steam excursion operations. Here are trips and events I've covered associated with the '21st Century Steam' program.
