The Folkston Funnel, Folkston, Georgia

Last Thursday, Mom and I spent all day at the Folkston Funnel in Folkston, Georgia. I love trains and I saw 18 trains while we were there. My favorite trains are long mixed freight trains with a variety of rail cars with 17 or more cars and 2 or more engines pulling it.

  1. Hi Zach. I’m one of your neighbors, and also friends with your momma… What a wonderful life you live, getting to enjoy all of your favorite things! You are definitely lucky to have a Mom that affords you all of the amazing travels that you get to do together! Keep on smiling, Zach! Your neighbor, Marie. 🙂

  2. I am VERY impressed with your ability, Zach, to take an interest in something (such as trains, or insects) and take it ALL THE WAY, so you become an EXPERT. An expert, I can call, and ask anything about a bug, the reasoning for folk laying the tracks at the bottom of my North-faced STEEP hill, way back in the day–all kinds of things!! I am SO glad that you have a terrific Mom who VALUES this, and celebrates your ability to study these WITH you!

    • Hi Judy, this is Zach. I caught a lot of crickets last night. I will take pictures of the new bug habitats I made for them and post them here for you.

  3. I love reading your posts about trains and crickets Zach. And I love your smile and your enthusiasm when you talk about them. It makes me smile too!
    Love you! Nana ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. Hi Zach! I see trains a lot here but they only have 5 cars. I don’t think I have ever seen one with 17 cars! That is definitely cool.

  5. Love the train pics! When I lived in the desert, we would have to wait for what seemed like forever for trains to go by us. Some trains were over a mile long. There is something very enchanting about a train in the desert. Maybe it’s the loneliness of the surrounding environment?

  6. Nice, Zach. Looks like you’re having a good time in GA. Do they run different types of trains down there or are they mostly the same models as up in New England?

    • Hi Sam, this is Zach. They run similar types, but a different railroad company. Mostly the CSX company and Riceboro Southern railway.
