Hi there. I live down here in Savannah, GA and thats happened down here. There was a unit train of steel pipes heading N. I believe it's normally a mix freight but more and more unit trains are passing through here. Hope I helped some! Jason

Don't know whether you are aware of this group or not but Carolina Rails has a very active Q & A site. While most of its active contributors seem to live or railfan south central NC and north central SC (and there is always some activity in their forum) they also talk about railfanning in other areas as well. Generally a post to their site results in several informative responses. The address is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/carolinarails
