Leeds, Alabama, is where the Central of Georgia District joins the East End District. Westbound train 137 from Columbus (above) meets eastbound train 154, which is enroute to Atlanta.
I can hear the trains at night in my new house. It makes me think of the ocean, of the tracks wrapping around the bay like a necklace. It’s so beautiful out there near the water, near the tracks. Where life will stop for a moment as the train goes blaring by, announcing itself to the sea and to all the little people asleep in their beds dotting along the shore line. And as the train passes on the quiet of the night sinks back in.
