This massive, rare, historic steam locomotive is made its way from Virginia to Strasburg, where it will be housed until late October with events starting in September. 

The 611 is the last surviving example of Norfolk & Western's Class J, a steam passenger locomotive built from 1941 until 1950. 

It is also a mechanical marvel - underneath its modernist streamlined exterior lies a machine revered as a Historic Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
