  • Nice spot in the middle of town in Locust Grove, GA. Years ago it was a quiet place. Moved down this way in 1987. It has grown so fast in the last couple of years.
  • Great place to watch freight trains pass from this sheltered platform. I was able to see two trains in just over an hour, which was really nice Edit: Went back a second time in March 2022 and didn't disappoint. Stopped there for lunch and got lucky with two intermodal trains in 20 minutes.
  • Great place to stop and watch trains go by. There are electric outlets. Food nearby. Only thing missing is a bathroom but there are businesses nearby- I had a peach milkshake, I think it was the peach pit or peach-something and it was delicious! We only saw 2 trains in about 2 hours but they say there's usually alot more.
  • We drove down from Atlanta for an afternoon of railfanning and spent a few hours, here. It's a nice platform with a couple of picnic tables, a working scanner, benches, and ample free parking. The only downside is the traffic noise from the adjacent road. We didn't have much luck seeing trains (it was a holiday), but it was worth coming down.
  • Great place to view trains. My autistic son loves to come here and view trains from this location. They have a covered platform, fencing to protect people from the railroad, announcements on train work, parking. Please review the schedule before you show up or you might be waiting a while.
