Awesome!  A nine-month rehabilitation plan means that it's feasible that 611 could be running in 2014.  I was lucky enough to chase this J in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1994 before she was mothballed.  I look forward to seeing her run again.

Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

I was riding one of those trains.  That was my dad's fifth birthday present to me.

If you want it to happen... this is the page to go to:

This will happen... but to make it happen we need funding first.

I go back a touch further

Riding in the early 80s in Ohio on excursions
It's my 3rd favorite steam engine, behind the NKP 765 and SP 4494.
