Train Watching at the Folkston Funnel; 18 January 2014

Archives

Folkston, GA – Last Saturday,  I went down to to Folkston for a few hours to watch trains from the Folkston Funnel train watching platform.  The weather was wonderful, so it was a great day for train watching.  I was working in Brunswick for the weekend and didn’t have anything better to do for the afternoon, so it was off to Folkston.  While there, I met train watcher Gordon Davis.  His knowledge main watching the trains even more fun and I learned a few things while there.  Gordon was taking photos as well as video of the trains and you can see his videos of  trains from the Folkston Funnel and other locations on his YouTube page.  The railway was quite active while I was there and Gordon (having been there since morning) said it had been that way all day.
