    Chris (Interurban) mentioned that he was from Manchester, England and wanted to see some pictures of Manchester, GA. Here are some that I took a couple of years ago.

    Manchester is located between Atlanta and Columbus. Lines from Birmingham, Atlanta, and Waycross all meet here. Traffic is very heavy. The rail lines are now CSX (former Atlantic Coast Line). There is a long, narrow yard in the valley. A train-watching platform and an overpass give excellent views of the action. It would make a great prototype for a model railroad. :D
