On April 22-23, 2016, 5 members of the Citrus Model RR Club, their wives, and a few friends made a trip to Folkston GA to watch trains at the “Folkston Funnel” - a spot where two major CSX rail lines into Florida converge, providing frequent train traffic. The city of Folkston has erected a rail fan platform alongside the tracks to make that experience easy and enjoyable.
The Citrus Model Railroad Club had the honor of hosting the ladies of the Philanthropic Educational Organization and their husbands. The day included lunch along with a tour of all three club layouts and a operational demonstration of the HO layout. The meal was a real club favorite: Hobo Stew and cornbread, followed by sweet potato cake for dessert!
