These railcars were moved into place to act as a screen for the Woodbury set for the AMC series The Walking Dead. The cars remained in place until the conclusion of shooting and then were removed by the Norfolk Southern Railroad.

Technically this section of the Norfolk Southern Railroad is inactive and not abandoned because the rails are still in place. However the crossing at the nearby CSX mainline has been removed so it is impossible for a trail to move beyond this point.

Notice the whistle sign still in place!

Senoia Georgia once enjoyed prosperity as a center of agricultural commerce in Southeastern Coweta County Georgia.

In these rural towns the hardware store was a fixture. And Hutchinson Hardware served the citizens of Senoia for many, many years.

Hutchinson Hardware is now an upscale Boutique Store Complex in Senoia GA

But times change and today Senoia is an eclectic mixture of restaurants, boutique shops, and service businesses. The hardware store building was adapted to accommodate the new upscale image of the town.

In addition, several new buildings have been constructed that maintain the “look and feel” of the historic downtown. The integrity of architectural character takes one back to the the early 20th century despite the fact that some of the new buildings were built within the last decade.

Senoia has boasted a movie studio for some time, and many scenes from feature films and television shows were produced there. Today it serves as a major shooting location for the AMC hit television series “The Walking Dead.” Fans of the show from all over the country and the world flock to the town to see where the fictional apocalypse takes place.

Senoia has certainly changed over the last twenty years. And most people would agree that it has changed for the better!
