I'm glad I got to shoot 611 the last couple years, the rumors I am hearing is that NS isn't letting it run anymore.
It was a fun weekend. I went down with my oldest son and just did our own thing.

As for 611... NS isn't directly supporting it being ran. They will allow it to run anywhere that Amtrak runs this year though. There's some interesting conversations going on regarding where 611 may end up next year (and the years after that). Stay tuned.
