Weather was a tad better than last year. As a result, twenty-three members turned out for a spectacular show! You might be interested in this video about the Class J steam locomotive Norfolk and Western 611 on its last run up the Saluda grade which starts at around 1:00 into the movie. It starts to stall at 3:00 and restarts around 6:30. That is some dirty smoke!
Photography by Ken Borgfeldt, David Heavner, Penny Longhurst, and Jim Poling. Click on any picture to enter the slide show.
