Got out this morning and early afternoon around Atlanta, GA. Highlight of the day was a primer NS GEVO on Piedmont Div. local P76. Also caught GA03 with a pair of high-hood GP38-2's...

Cool shots, we had a primered GEVO up here as well, also counted SEVEN high hood geeps! Great weekend of railroading.

Yes, this is a major NS yard for block swapping as well as an intermodal terminal for trucks and shipping containers. Most (~90%) of NS trains in Atlanta go through the yard. You really can't get photos of the shops, but you can shoot all of the trains from the bridge on which I got two of those overhead shots.

Also, CSX has a major yard just next door, so it is real easy to move back and forth between the two based on traffic densities.

There is never a boring moment while railfanning around Atlanta.
