I got out all day Sunday in north GA for one last good day before having to start studying and finishing projects for the end of the semester. Here's what I saw...

I started the morning out on NS and first caught a SB Powder River coal train heading to Plant Scherer near Macon, GA.

Next, we moved north and intercepted a NB mixed freight on Braswell Mountain with a pair of TFM SD70MAC's trailing the NS SD60 leading.

We then headed into Rockmart, GA at the north base of the mountain and found NS 174's lite power with a B32-8 and a couple C40-9W's. The B32 made for nice pictures.

After that, we decided to head over to CSX at Cartersville, GA where we caught a bunch of trains. First up was a NB container train with a pair of clean CSX ES44DC's at Kingston, GA (just north of Cartersville).

Back in Cartersville, we found a yard job switching cars with 4 4-axle GE's for power.

We saw some other NB's in Cartersville, but nothing was noteworthy about them.

Next, we move south to Emerson, GA and find a SB CSX auto-rack train with a BNSF leader.

We also catch CSX SB Q141 with juice empties with a pair of C40-8W's.

We then head over to the Etowah River Bridge for the shot of the day of a NB empty coal train.

We decide to head south and stop at Smyrna, GA to get another empty coal train with the "Spirit of Dante" leading.

Thanks for looking,
