Greetings, Matt, Somehow I completely missed your comment above. I am so sorry. Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this wonderful old Steam locomotive in the field! Yeah, I know its crazy! How neat that you were able to find it on Google Maps though. Everything is possible in today's advanced world! Yes, I do enjoy tracks and old trains. I am eager to go to the site you've provided, and thank you in advance for the tip! I hope you're enjoying this splendid weather, and I'll look forward to talking to you again soon! :)

Very best regards from Yatesville,

Mary Alice

Thanks for sharing your find Mary! Last weekend we hunted down the engine but unfortunately was not able to get as close. Was surprise to see the abandoned Roosevelt rail line next to it. I am not much of a photographer but was able to snag some pictures.

Nathan, I am honored to have inspired such a search, and so happy that you enjoyed your adventure and came away with such cool shots. I enjoyed your blog very much, and thank you for sharing! It is quite a lovely place over there! My dad and I walked the line for quite some time and enjoyed every second of it. I posted some shots of it on my site somewhere as well, but don't know how to navigate through the new set-up enough to find any of them anymore. I recently noticed that Panoramio has completely changed. I am barely able to even reply to comment left these days, but I am trying here with you now ! :) Thanks again for your enthusiasm and for sharing your great adventure. I think your photos are excellent, and they certainly tell the story!
Very best wishes to you, Mary Alice

MaryAlice, Is this on private property? I would like to potentially shoot a local Christian Rock Band from Griffin here but before I decide to do so I need to understand if we can get access to it. Thanks, Bryan

bdburtonTN, If I remember correctly, it was on private property, but it's been some years since I went there. I'm not sure who you would need to talk to to get permission to do the shoot, but the best of luck to you and the band! :) Mary Alice
