Hey Gang!!

I'll be heading to Greensboro, NC this weekend for my sister's soccer tournament and was hoping to squeeze in a little train watching. Does anybody know some good spots to watch trains at there? How many trains a day and best times to be there? Thanks!!!
Happy Railfanning!!

The Amtrak station of Holden Road and spring Garden is at the south end of Pomona Yard and great for railfanning. Train counts average 35-40 a day with evenings and late morning being the best times. Lee Street downtown by the old depot is also good (Junction of Mainline and H-Line to Raleigh). The Raleigh frieghts usually come through in the late evening, although sometimes 100 cars long.

I agree about the station site. I'm a "Twister's" fan as my nieces played for them through high school.

How old is your sister? Some people might want to watch her play soccer instead of watch trains.
