Woody's Train Log


A group of some of the southeast's most dedicated railfans came to a sacred hot spot in the the southeastern most tip of Georgia. called the "Florida Funnel" on April 7, 8 and 9, 2000.  Spearheaded by Danny Harmon of the Tampa area and several of the local cictizens of the town of Folkston, Ga., where the funnel is located, nearly 30 people came to watch CSX put on a very good show.Averaging 60 trains in 24 hours the variety of power seen exceeded my expectations.  So enough of the yack yack . Here is a report of what I saw during a 24 hour session at Folkston. I must credit many people for there assistance in the ID process of this report.
