Our Story

In 2013, the Virginia Museum of Transportation formed the Fire Up 611 Committee to begin restoration work on the Class J steam locomotive Norfolk and Western 611. In 2015, after two years and countless hours of work, the fire was lit and the 611 was returned to operation. The 2017 season marked 611’s third year of excursions.
