Remarks & Notes 
N&W 611 fights upgrade east of Shawsville on a morning Walton turn excursion. May 29, 2017. The sound coming up the mountain was magnificent. There was a brief moment where I contemplated not even lifting the camera to make a photo. I'm glad I did. "Yet it all somehow seems unreal, as if the stuffed prehistoric mammals in a marbled zoo had suddenly come alive and were charging about with loud snorts and great strength as they once had thousands of years before evolution overcame them."- David P. Morgan (November 1954 Trains magazine article on N&W)

Taking a look at the same train and scene as captured by different photographers. The best way to view will be to sort by photo date so the photos are grouped together.
