Norfolk & Western Class J #611 Steam Locomotive - VA Museum of Transportation

14 of these locomotives were built in the N&W Roanoke shop. The J was one of the most powerful steam locomotives ever built, and could pull a 15 car passenger train at 110 mph over level terrain. The 611 is the only Class J still in existence. It was restored in the 1980's for the Museum. (From the Museum Visitors Guide)
