Southern Railway 630 – crowd-sourced map

[b]Update:[/b] the map is still available, but no longer editable.

Are you planning to photograph Southern Railway 630 in Tennessee during November? Do you have Google Maps on your mobile phone?

Then let’s try an experiment. I’ve created a collaborative map that you can access from your computer, or from Google Maps Mobile.

If you’re logged into your Google account, you’ll see an option to “Save to My Places.” Once you’ve saved it, the map will be available in the “My Places” layer of your Google account, and in the “My Maps” layer of Google Maps Mobile.

Select a point to see a link to a photo. If there’s no photo link, use Street View to explore the area. If you would like to add to the map, help out other photographers by adding new points from your computer, or adding information to existing points. (You will need to be logged into your Google account to edit the map.)

If you choose to edit the map, please don’t add any schedule information that hasn’t been made public by Norfolk Southern or Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum (dates, departure times, stops, etc.), and please don’t delete any points or information.

If you have an Android phone, you can get directions to a point in Google Maps Navigation. (Drive responsibly, of course.)

See you trackside!
