Video Galleries: The Florence/Sheffield/Muscle Shoals Area


A video compilation of our day railfanning the Norfolk Southern Memphis District West End in the Quad-Cities area of Florence, Muscle Shoals, Sheffield and Tuscumbia. Most of the footage is from downtown Sheffield on the double track NS between "East End Two Tracks" and the control point Tuscumbia. This is a great area to railfan and highly underrated in my opinion
