Cool that your son got to blow the whistle. I got a brief ride in 611's cab back in the 1980's during her initial tourist stint. IIRC it was on a ferry run from D.C. (actually, Alexandria, VA) to Norfolk. Magnificent machine.

USA BIG STEAM LIVES

Thank you for sharing. Your son will remember this event the rest of his life. BTW is Big Steam making a comeback? It would be nice to some of the Big Steam from the 1980-90s powered up & back on the rails again.

USA BIG BOY IS A COMING.

The #611 runs way back east so I will probably not see under steam it in my lifetime. Here in the Kansas City area I have seen the UP 844 & UP 3985 under steam at Union Station several times. I hope to see the UP 4014 when it is in KC town November 18-19th. Weather permitting of course. Winter storms in the Midwest can be very tricky for sure.
