Folkston Railfan Platform

Folkston Railfan Platform

The Folkston Railfan Platform is located in Folkston, Georgia, and provides a location where railfans can safely view and photograph trains. With the help of a $30,000 state grant, the city built the train-watching platform in 2001.

Since that time, the city has attracted thousands of railfans from across the nation who come to Folkston to see the dozens of CSX and three Amtrak trains headed toward Jacksonville, Florida. The platform is equipped with ceiling fans and a radio scanner that allows railfans to hear railroad-related radio traffic. Wireless internet access was recently made available.

The double-track mainline that passes through town sees dozens of trains each day. Most CSX freight traffic into Florida passes through Folkston.
