Manassas Steam Train Excursion with N&W 611
June 6, 2015 am30 7:30 am EDT @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
Looking for something completely different? Streamlined steam locomotive Norfolk & Western 611 will pull passenger excursions out of Manassas on June 6th (morning) and 7th (morning and afternoon) as part of Norfolk Southern’s 21st Century Steam program. 611 recently underwent a massive restoration after more than two decades in retirement. These trips, the first trips open to the public, are a rare opportunity to ride behind the most powerful passenger steam locomotive ever built. Experience the fun and excitement of riding aboard vintage rail passenger cars as the train takes you on a scenic trip to Front Royal and back to Manassas. Whether you ride in coach, first class, or up in one of the dome cars, this unique adventure is one you won’t soon forget.
