Norfolk & Western Class J 611 Model Kit by Corrugated Container Corp.
Available only at the Virginia Museum of Transportation
Absolutely amazing! From a distance, our cardboard model looks almost like the Queen herself! The completed model, including the engine and tender, is about 24 inches long and 5 inches high. The kit includes 9 full color pre-cut pieces, a plastic nose piece, plastic couplers, complete instructions for assembly, and an information card. Additional information about the 611, Corrugated Container Corp., copyright, etc. is printed on the underside of the model. None of this is visible when the model is complete and set in place. Included with the instructions is a QR code to take you to an online instructional video.
Our 611 model is perfect for a desk top, a bookshelf, the train room, or almost any place in your home. Although it is not intended to be a child’s toy, it is sturdy enough for an older child to enjoy. The kit is designed for an adult to assemble, but it would also make an ideal parent/child project.
Our cardboard model kit of the Class J 611 was designed, manufactured, and donated by Corrugated Container Corp. in Roanoke, Virginia. When you purchase this model, you are helping to Fire Up the 611!

Our 4 year grandson loves the 611. When my son ask me to make him a 611 cake for his 4th birthday I had some thinking to do so I visited your sight for a picture of the 611. I found the Cardboard Model and thought maybe I could use it to model the cake after. Well, it ended up being the cake topper. I wish I could send you pictures of our grandson's face when he saw his cake. IT WAS A SUCCESS! I made the track out of sugar wafers so the frosting would not get on the cardboard model and as soon as the model was taken off of the cake he was in the floor playing with the train! Yes, it was a BIG CAKE! But he loved it!

Well done corrugated model of 611. Assembly sheet is well done and all pieces are clearly marked. I am a designer for a corrugated packaging company and was curious to see how this was done. Very nice job. Everyone that has seen the assembled 611 has been impressed. Wish we had thought of it!

My husband is waiting to put the model together with our great nephew, so we assume all pieces are there! The quality of the pieces are impressive and we look forward to displaying it.
