Manchester Train-Watching Platform
|Manchester, in west central Georgia, is the busy junction of CSX lines from Atlanta, Birmingham, and Waycross. The railroad came to this area in 1907 as the Atlanta, Birmingham & Atlantic, which was in the process of extending an existing line from Montezuma. The new town of Manchester was established here as the rails were being laid.
|The train in this photo is on the Birmingham-Waycross alignment. Curving away on the right are the tracks to Atlanta.
