The town of Folkston, Ga., has become a mecca for people who love to watch trains go by. Trainspotters are allowed to get 75 feet away from the 70 trains a day that pass through the town, right on the Georgia/Florida border. There are even overhead fans and spotlights for night viewing! NPR's Kathy Lohr reports.
