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.
