N&W 611
Title:  N&W 611
Description:  Norfolk and Western's 611 doubleheaded with Savannah and Atlanta 750 from Alexandria to Richmond. We caught up with 611 at Penola, and chased her all the way to Richmond. Here, 611 rests at Bryan Park. For unknown reasons, 750 and the FP7 helpers continued on to the Southern's Hull St. Yard in South Richmond. Exact date unknown.
