Class J 611 Away from the VMT until April 25
611’S SPECIAL APPEARANCES
In addition to opportunities to ride and watch 611 roll by on excursions in 2016, the public is invited to take advantage of a number of special opportunities to get up close to 611 under steam, take photos, and meet the crew.
“We are very excited to offer this experience that people haven’t had before, to get really close to 611,” said Jim Stump, Forward 611 committee chair for the VMT. “We will be taking 611 to new destinations and giving communities an exciting opportunity to celebrate their history and rail heritage. It is amazing to experience this engine fired up.”
The events at the NCTM and the City of Danville involve only the locomotive and its crew. No excursions to Danville or to Spencer (NCTM) are offered.
