Album Info:Reminiscent of my trip December 7, 1994, to see what we thought would be the last run of 611, here are shots from today's deadhead move of 611 between Spencer, NC, and Roanoke. Let's hope we'll see trips in the future

FLASHBACK!  Here's the 611 on its way back to Roanoke on Dec. 7, 1994.  We all thought this would be the last time we'd ever see 611 run

Going away shot of 611 at Hurt, VA.  We were happy to see it was routed to Roanoke via Lynchburg, and not via the former Virginian.

Hidden by its own smoke 611 heads toward Lynchburg.  We were happy it did not get routed via the former Virginian.

The manager of a car repair shop graciously let me park in his lot in Forest, VA, to wait on the 611.  This stick looked something like a praying mantis or the creature from the movie "Alien".
