Annual Rail Watch
3795 Main Street
Folkston, GA 31537
Rail watchers from all over the world come to watch trains at the Historic Depot Train Museum and the Folkston Funnel Platform. Enjoy photography, videos and other rail fans.
"The Folkston Funnel" is located in downtown Folkston, Georgia. It is a CSXT double-track main line. All of CSXT's trains moving to and from Florida (except the few trains that go west) must pass through the funnel. There are six Amtrak trains passing through the funnel each day; the Auto Train is one of these. The Tropicana Juice Train moves from Bradenton, FL, to Kearney, NJ, five nights a week. The platform is equipped with a scanner tuned to CSXT's frequency 160.590 and 160.320. Lights and electric outlets are available. A picnic table, grill and restrooms are available for visitors.
