    Holy crap another railfan! I'm from middle Georgia. Lots of CSX moving over the ex-Georgia Railroad from Augusta to Atlanta and NS kaolin trains moving south to Savannah.

    Lets get this thread going! I enjoy catching shots of the trains thru Opelika before work if my timing is right. This morning was a good one. CSX waiting on a Norfolk Southern at the level junction. Here are a few of my shots.

    Awesome pictures bud. If I remember correctly Opelika used to be a stop on the old Western Railway of Alabama.

    That's ferroequinologist to you, sir.

    Unfortunately nothing's moved on the high iron on Vancouver Island in quite a few years... :(

    Had CSX #1 come through Augusta about a week ago. Augusta has a pretty wide variety of train traffic with multiple CSX and NS trains moving daily

    I had to look that up but yes you are correct. I only really see NS and CSX. CSX headed East/West are very frequent. About a year ago there was a BNSF engine on the NS in Opelika but I just missed it. I couldn't get down to my spot quick enough. I have also spotted a Union Pacific on the CSX line a few years ago.
    I actually posted a video I made of that on my Instagram. Uploaded it to Youtube just now so I could share it in here.

    I don't know much about the lingo and all that but I do like taking photo's of em!

    Not a railfan, but I work on the RR. I'm sure there's some others in the industry on here.
