Cornelia - the other big apple
Cornelia, Georgia located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Parkway, north of Atlanta was once the beginning of the Tallulah Falls Railway which ran North to Franklin, North Carolina.
It is located on the Norfolk Southern Railroad still today and has a nicely restored depot (open limited hours) along with a couple of cabooses on display. There are plenty of seats to watch the passing trains. Amtrak passes through in the middle of the night both ways, but the trains don't stop here anymore.
Cornelia is also famous for the "Big Red Apple" which is on display next to the depot which pays homage to the areas past as a large producer of apples. See Patrice's photo of the apple here.
