Long may she wave.


+Amtrak 117 heads South during #Railwatch2014  

The crew saluted the railfans with their horn as they passed through Folkston, Georgia on their way South to Florida. The Patriotic crew (including one professed #railfan  ) waved "Old Glory" from the cab.

HOG heaven in Vidalia, GA

On the way back to Atlanta today, found this interesting loco in the Sweet Onion City.

I think the shop has done some "touch-up" painting on this one at some point.

Introduction
Hope you will take a moment to visit my online gallery: Rusted Rail Images  

==================================
About me:

I enjoy exploring, photographing, and writing about the places in my world.

My favorite subjects to photograph are RailroadsAmericana and PhotoSquared

I grew up in the San Diego area (Poway) but have lived in the Southeastern US since 1990.
 
I now live in the Atlanta Metro area. Prior to that, I lived in several places across the Southeast including South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, and Arkansas. 
 
I'm most likely to circle people who are active photographers. Be sure to check out #alphabetcircles for my latest circles of these folks.
