Album Info:Labor Day Weekend, I was taking a trip from College to home and decided that I wanted to ride the train instead of Greyhound and Trailways. I rode the Southern Crescent from Atlanta to Birmingham, changed stations and took a late Floridian from Birmingham to Thomasville, Ga. It cost more than the bus but was definately worth the price. Along the way, I did take a few pictures, mainly in Birmingham. Little did I know that I would move to Birmingham in 4 years and live there for decades!
