While in York for the meet, we stopped in Strasburg to see the J-611 there. I'm not much of a photographer, but I've attached a few pictures. BTW, she is in beautiful condition. The crew was preparing to take her out. If someone has already posted photos of her, I apologize.

Wow, what a powerful machine that is. A true classic in the final days of steam...and it does me good to see it steam again.

I almost pre-ordered the latest Lionel Legacy version...I had to draw the line on purchases, as I am already in the poor house, what with Bipolars due around the same time.

I had the TMCC/Odyssey model from early 2000s - that deep-base whistle was one of the best IMO.

I'm not big on eastern locomotives, but that is one gorgeous locomotive. It's on my bucket list to see someday.

We saw it out the window of the Strasburg train ride this weekend.
My wallet would not let me get close.

Very beautiful locomotive for sure. Oddly enough I have/had this very engine in O scale. However, I bought a new house in January of this year and this train has vanished.

It’s driving me nuts because in my blue million items of train stuff this engine is no where to be found. It’s the last remaining piece of O gauge items I have. I have sold everything else in O scale. Wherever it is it has 4 pieces of track with it which completes a box of track I plan to sell too.

I am hoping it turns up but it sure is odd that it Has went MIA.
