Title:  Track Maintenence at Hair
Description:  CSX was doing some heavy duty rail-pulling this September morning, and NS trains were required to proceed slowly and stop just before reaching the work limit. This train was given permission to proceed through the stop signals shortly after this photo was taken. A video of the action from this day of railfanning is available on my website.

Description:  This train just came off of a siding near Dalton, and it struggles with its heavy GM train through the curves and grades at Hill City. The little town is aptly named.

Summertime Shimmers
Title:  Summertime Shimmers
Description:  This photo is not quite as dangerous as it seems at first glance. Normally, I avoid being on the railroad tracks like the plague, especially when a moving train is nearby. But this was actually the pusher end of a freight that was moving away. I had to walk through the grade-crossing to get back to my car anyway, so I decided to get the quick shot. This photo also illustrates why long range photography in Georgia in the middle of summers is a crap-shoot. Time: 13:10

Lucky Sevens
Title:  Lucky Sevens
Description:  This size photo does not do this scene justice! It was a long, hot wait at Oostanaula Bend for this northbound freight, but the payoff was well worth the effort! Seven locos and 110 cars blast their way through the bean fields on their way to Chattanooga. For a better photo that was taken earlier in the day, refer to Alan Garret's "Power to Spare" photo at http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=397555
