My railroad is known as the Barefoot & Southern, based in 1880 in the winter. It's an On30 layout that serves the swamps of NC doing logging and such. It will run a few 8-18c 4-4-0s. It's not your typical logging line though, it also handles mainline freights and passenger service, due to the popularity of game hunting. The locals are a bunch of fish trappers and loggers, and they're not big a fan of the new people coming in to develop on their fishing grounds. The however enjoy the rail service to the outside world to get supplies and logging equipment.

Rock On!

If you lived in Miami…you’d swear there’s a tunnel.
This is tallest point round these parts.

CSX serves port Tampa.
No more railfanning around the port (very strict) but some good places still around the yard.

Big show over there this weekend.

Since CSX serves port Tampa, how come there is no Amtrak to Tampa?
Ever wonder, as there is existing CSX railroad tracks to Tampa, and Amtrak runs over CSX tracks in Florida.
