The Folkston Funnel is a double track that serves as the main artery for railroad traffic into and out of Florida. From the viewing platform in Folkston, visitors can see trains passing on their way to and from Jacksonville, Florida, in the south, and a split north of town where trains go west to Waycross, Georgia, and north to Savannah.
The platform features lights, ceiling fans, and a scanner to listen in to radio traffic between trains. Adjacent to the platform are picnic tables, a grill, and a new restroom facility for our guests.
Trains can also be enjoyed from the grounds of the restored Folkston depot, just diagonally across the tracks from the platform.
