January 3rd, 2020

We started the day at Pascagoula, Mississippi, catching a single CSX out the window of the hotel in torrential rain before going off to explore, and quickly find, the Mississippi Export Rail. We were lucky enough to catch it on the causeway near the company's shops in Moss Point before proceeding on to the port city of Mobile Alabama to check out another shortline, the Alabama Export, where we found two G&W units switching and a single pre-G&W painted unit elusively switching in a spot we simply couldn't shoot.

Pascagoula, Mississippi

Near the Mississippi-Alabama border along the CSX at the junction of the Mississippi Export.

Moss Point, Mississippi

Home of the Mississippi Export Rail shops just north of Pascagoula, there is some almost street-running and an easily viewed curved causeway.

We gave short chase to the Mississippi Export as it headed south to the interchange. We were heading east, not south, and had to break off after this one.

One of several trains to be switching within a half-mile of each other on three different lines, we watched a lone NS unit working for a few minutes.
