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.
