Catching Trains on Crossing Tracks: Dalton Part I

DALTON, Ga. — Downtown Dalton provides quite the railfanning experience.

Two busy lines — one CSX, the other Norfolk Southern — cross in the middle of town. As a result, the city sees more than 50 freight trains every day, according to some estimates.

A great spot to catch the action at the Dalton Diamond is from the former Dalton Freight Depot. The building is today home to the Dalton Visitor’s Center and Gift Shop and features a computer screen with train information from both NS and CSX.
