Racing the storm
Title:  Racing the storm
Description:  During the entire weekend a low pressure system, that would eventually become a Tropical Storm, sent bands of rain over town. Here a GEVO, a CW60AC, and a sister GEVO race south through Folkston ahead of a storm.

Accellerating...downhill...
Title:  Accellerating...downhill...
Description:  The long string of pigs really had a draw on the engines. Once the lead engine cleared the Martin St. crossing, he had the engines growling and churning in typical GE style, even on a down hill grade.

Can't be afraid of heights
Title:  Can't be afraid of heights
Description:  Coming from a town where we see a local freight once a day, consisting of mostly gravel hoppers and tanks, standing near double-stacks moving at 60+ mph can be a little intimidating!

An old Veteran, still plugging away
Title:  An old Veteran, still plugging away
Description:  An example of CSX's first brand new locomotives still earning her keep, although is desperate need of some TLC.

Here comes the rain
Title:  Here comes the rain
Description:  Ok, what's the first rule when the lights start flashing? Granted, the gates weren't completely down, and A772 is only going about 5 mph, but come on!

Unit
Title:  Unit
Description:  Amazing when you can get a train carrying the same product. Or at least enough of the same kind of trailer in a row to make a picture appear that way. Just dumb luck that a bunch of Crowley trailers were spread out in a row.

The Rocket gets underway
Title:  The Rocket gets underway
Description:  CSX A772, the Fernandina Rocket slowly accelerates her way to Waycross. What's always interesting about A772 and her southbound counterpart, is that you can always find something unique in the locomotive lashups. Today, an ex Norfolk Southern (nee-Conrail) B40-8, still in her NS paint, lends a helping hand. Again, another storm is on its way.

The Silver Meteor
Title:  The Silver Meteor
Description:  A surprisingly on time P098 makes its appearance. Both tracks are now set up as Northbound, thanks to 98's stop in Jesup, GA. Once 98 crosses over from 2 to 1 just north of town, track 1 will again revert to a Southbound line.

Speeding
Title:  Speeding
Description:  Are you sure that's only 40 mph guys? CSX 8030 screams by with a power bounce, followed by a long string of wood chippers. He must have been in an awful hurry to get to Waycross. It was hard to focus the camera on him.

One last shot
Title:  One last shot
Description:  Apparently, CSX observes Labor Day as well. A full 2 hours after the Meteor crawled through, a Northbound mixed crosses Martin St. I waited another hour, and nothing else came through. Even the radio was silent. So I decided it was time to head for home.
