Carter's Bridge
Title:  Carter's Bridge
Description:  When it comes to rail photography, i've not had much luck on the Etowah Subdivision. As you can see from the photo, i've still not had much luck. The train came out of nowhere, with no warning from the scanner. I had no time to set up, no time to adjust, and the cars ahead of me were waiting for me to cross over the one lane bridge. It was stick the camera out the window, shoot blind, and hope for the best. The locomotive is heading up a fast moving empty unit coal train headed northbound. Time: 8:00pm

End of an era
Title:  End of an era
Description:  Model T to Model A. Dreadnaught to Battleship. Steam to Diesel. 8-track to cassette. All good things must come to an end, and so it is with modern technology. This day, I was using a 10 year old Canon 35mm camera. The next day, it was in the yard sale bin, replaced by a shiny new digital camera. Just as this Dash 8 was brand new when I bought my Canon, pretty soon, it will be on the scrap heap, replaced by the newer, high tech unit just behind it.

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!

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

Mt. Chetooga
Title:  Mt. Chetooga
Description:  The bore at Tunnel Hill is the only tunnel on the Western & Atlantic Sub. The "modern" bore is 460+ meters in length, and was built in 1928. The old bore (to the right) was finished in 1850. It was a target for Andrew's raiders in 1862, but survived the Civil War undamaged. It was closed when the new bore opened, and was actually "lost" for a few years as Kudzuu consumed the tunnel entrances on both sides of the mountain. The old bore is now part of a walking trail.
