I am stuck in Memphis, but things could be worse, I have this in my backyard. I don't get to see trains like this in Binghamton.

I get loaded and empty coal trains, with pushers, double stacked containers, and lots of mixed freight. BSNF, NS, and UP trains.

Best place to go in Memphis IMHO, is Kentucky Street. While it's technically on only the BNSF Thayer South Sub and UP Memphis Sub, you can see the IC diamond, NS, and CSX transfer traffic from there.

Hi, Brian:

Take a run out to about 20 miles east of the airport along I-240 to State 385 and visit the Collierville Train Museum/Tennessean Restaurant.


Diner is former E-L Phoebe Snow diner 769, (sister to EL Dining Car Preservation Society's EL 770/ Lackawanna 470) restored nicely to full operation -- it's the restaurant! Also features a 1937 Wabash ACF boat-tail observation lounge, and a bunch of other interesting stuff!

Consist occasionally goes out on the road, too!
