Down on the Farm: Montgomery Exudes Southern Charm

Location

Riverwalk Stadium

Just a decade old, Riverwalk Stadium has a spectacular location downtown. Though you can’t quite see the vast Alabama River from most of the stands, you do come across trains — and plenty of them.

Locomotives, mainly CSX Transportation, pass right along the outfield wall on raised tracks at various times. Since I do public relations work for various Class 1 railroads, I was enamored with this.
