Robby loves trains. I could not care less about trains. But, he heard that the town of Folkston in southeast Georgia is good for "train watching." Since we were going to be near there to tour the Okefenokee Swamp, Robby wanted to also go to Folkston.
The town of Folkston has actually constructed a viewing platform, with picnic tables, restrooms, and wireless internet for the hordes of "train watchers" which visit their town. It is quite a set-up they have:
According to some of the fellow train watchers we chatted with, Folkston holds "Rail Watch" weekends periodically. One of the couples we met there actually rented a room at a local bed and breakfast and made it a romantic weekend.
