Remarks & Notes 
Nothing says welcome to the South more in summer than over abundance of the imported vine, Kudzu. Originally brought to North America to control erosion, the fast growing vine rapidly did it's job and more. The high humidity and heat of the Southeast proved to be a perfect climate for the expanding Kudzu vine which can grow upwards to 12" or more within 24 hours at peak season. If not controlled the infamous vines can cause wheel slips on days you wouldn't think possible. Here at Talbotton, Georgia it's a race between what can get across the tracks quicker, the Kudzu or the many trains of CSX's Fitzgerald Sub. CSX C40-8 7570 leads Q237 into Talbotton as it enters the sea of Kudu north of town in August 2004. (Slide Scan)
