A great month for steam! The VA Museum of Transportation has a campaign under way to return the N&W J611 Streamlined "Queen of Steam" back to the rails. The 611 is the last remaining of the 14 Js built, in my opinion it is one of if not the most beautiful steam engine ever built, I rode an excursion behind her in the early '90s.
