Several years ago I removed all of my N&W Class J locomotives from display and took them to the VMT for the send off for the 611. We filled the layout at the museum and only ran Class J locomotives This is when the locomotive was to be broken down and rebuilt for excursion service.
Today the J returns to Roanoke for the first time in 4 years. Tomorrow the museum will have a special whistle blowing event with the J611. I will be bringing just three locomotives tomorrow for the VMT layout. The 600, 613 and of course the 611 to be run during the event.
