Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Filenames refer to location, date (dd.mm.yy), and camera-assigned four digit id number.

(map) Folkston is a town just north of the Florida border that has embraced trainspotting to the extent that they have built a train viewing platform complete with a permanent scanner.

January 11, 2018 We explored along an abandoned line eastward until finding the tracks back and a CSX local working at Waycross, before heading south to the railfan platform at Folkston. After having supper with friends in Jacksonville, we finished the day at the The Ponce, a railfan-friendly hotel in Saint Augustine with its own viewing platform for the Florida East Coast.
