Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W) steam locomotive No.. 611, "The Spirit of Roanoke", arrived home in Roanoke on Saturday, May 30, 2015, pulling into the former N&W Passenger Station (currently the O. Winston Link Museum) in Roanoke, Virginia (VA) with 18 passenger cars in tow, having traveled about 200 miles from Spencer, North Carolina (NC) where the Class J passenger locomotive had been restored.
