KENNESAW, Ga. — A love of trains was on full display earlier this month at the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History.
The Museum hosted its third annual Railroad Rendezvous, and railfans young and old gathered to take in model railroads, listen to railroad songs and participate in a hobo jungle. A number also enjoyed the rare opportunity to climb onto The General locomotive.
Outside the museum, CSX parked a CW44AC diesel-electric locomotive — No. 499 — on a spur track, giving attendees the chance to see a piece of modern-day motive power up close.
