Forsyth Georgia Festival

Our friends in Middle Georgia went to a Festival in Forsyth, Georgia November 7 and visited a privately owned Railroad Museum. He was kind enough to share his photos with us. He and his wife were with us for  Folkston Railwatch Day April 11.

Here  is the information he provided with the photos.
He also sent the train horn ringtone.

"Those 4 or 5 indoor pictures were inside a privately owned museum. The lady owner was there to greet us. That building was the original passenger station but the building with the desk, phone was built later to be used as the new passenger station. The first one became the cotton/freight station. They are about 50' apart.
Btw, the lady owner said this was only about 1/6 of her railroad memorabilia. She's building a station at her home about 12 miles away"

Thanks Dan.

Callahan, Florida Sept. 21, 2015

Stopped by the West Nassau Historical Society and Museum in Callahan on the way home from Folkston. The museum was closed but I took some photos anyway.

The Callahan Subdivision is a CSX Transportation railroad subdivision within the Jacksonville Division on the former Seaboard Air Line Railroad. The sub extends northward 20 miles from Baldwin, Florida, where the Jacksonville Terminal Subdivision's S Line and Tallahassee Subdivision meet just north of Baldwin Yard, a classification yard. According to Jacksonville Division Timetable Number 4 published in 2005,[1] the sub runs from milepost SM-0.18 to milepost SM-20.0, where it joins the Nahunta Subdivision, a former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, in Callahan, Florida.


This was my first try at turning still photos into a video. Used Open Shot in Linux Ubuntu.
