611 repaired, set to continue excursions


The 611 steam locomotive has been repaired, and is set to continue pulling the Shenandoah Valley Limited excursions, officials announced in a Facebook post.

According to officials, crews worked to repair the 611 in less than 24 hours.


The Queen of Steam will not be in use for this weekend’s remaining Shenandoah Valley Limited excursions, according to the Virginia Museum of Transportation.

In a press release, officials announced that due to an unforeseen mechanical issue, a necessary substitution of motive power will be made for the remaining excursions this weekend.

The VMT said diesel locomotives will be used to operate the excursions, which will continue as planned, departing from Victoria Station.

According to officials, the 611 steam locomotive will remain accessible to guests on static display throughout the weekend.
