With the demise of our beloved Panoramio I fear a lot of friendly connections will be lost forever. Certainly the contributions and historic comments from those no longer with us will disappear due to the greed of a company that thinks it above the "don't do evil" creed it supposedly set itself. I am on Flickr And may soon be on Ipernity. If you visit and have a different user name, please identify yourself!

thanks Carmeta! Best wishes from the UK ~ Fai

Thanks Andrzej. Have a good time, Petr

Sorry, folks, y'all are all wrong about the Macon & Birmingham Railroad!

As a member of the now defunct Georgia, Southern and Florida Railroad Historical Society, (of which the M&B was a subsidiary) I know the M&B went through Yatesville, but in town it ran parallel to another railroad. That railroad owned the trestle which you have photographed.

It was known officially as the Atlanta & Florida Railroad (alternately referred to as the Atlanta & Fort Valley or the"Little Southern".) It ran actually between the Federal Pen area branching off the Southern there heading south through Hapeville, Riverdale, Fayetteville, Woolsley, Zetella, Williamson, Zebulon, Meansville, The Rock, Yatesville and south through Culloden, Musella, Roberta, Fort Valley and finally, Perry. Through service ended in 1947 with the line being torn up, iirc, south to Musella. The tracks still exist from Roberta South to Perry.

The M&B headed west towards Thomaston, Crest, Thundering Springs, Woodbury, Cedar Rock, Odessa, Mountville and finally, LaGrange. It ended there. It never went any further west than that. Eastbound from Yatesville it went southeast through some teeny tiny settlements wyeing in with the GS&F just north of the current Macon Airport and on to Macon from there. It ended service in 1927 and was all gone by 1929.

Just thought some of you would like to know for the record.

I wonder if you would like the real ale sold here better than a chilled Vendéen rosé wine, Patrick? I somehow doubt it. ;-)

Thank you so much for your lovely compliment.

Amitiés, Amelia

It is well worth a visit, Amelia, especially as the area is full of lovely places. A day split between Jedburgh and Melrose would be time well spent (and The Burts Hotel in Melrose does super pub meals!).

Thanks, Keith

Thanks Amelia. I believe it is sandstone, and from more than one source. The red stone occurs throughout the borders and down towards the Penrith area. I'm not sure where the gold and the brown stuff is from - possibly from the same area as the stone used at Whitby. I would have loved to see the carving when it was fresh!

Cheers, Keith
