It's time to bring a Diesel Era Streamline Masterpiece back to life!!
The Norfolk & Western J-class Streamline Locomotive #611 is a rare masterpiece of late steam-power and streamline design. Kept alive for tour excursions up to the mid 1990's, she's been in storage or static display ever since [image from locomotive.wikia.com].
But there's a campaign to get her up and running again [http://fireup611.org/]!
If they reach their fundraising goal by October 31st they'll finish her in time for the Norfolk Southern 21st Century Steam Program in 2014, meaning she'll be available for rides!
Help do your part to bring a Diesel Era treasure back to running order!
Here she is on one of her last outings, just so you can see what the plan is:
