Train Day at Dalton Freight Depot
The Dalton Freight Depot will host National Train Day on Saturday, May 18th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the historic 1911 depot.
According to Ty Snyder, Manager of Visitor Centers for the Dalton CVB, “We expect to have dozens of train fans from around the region to join us in train viewing. The Freight Depot sits along parallel tracks of the Norfolk Southern and CSX railroads and is one of the prime spots in the South to watch trains. The depot is also equipped with everything a train fan needs: a covered platform with chairs and benches and an ATCS monitor and scanner that allows to them to get information about approaching trains.”
Along with the great train watching Snyder said other activities are planned for the day. The Southern Crescent Train Car, moved to the depot in 2011, will be open for tours from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and Spatial Affects Bluegrass Band will be on hand performing great railroad songs of the past and present. Finally, there will be an Insulator Swap Meet during the day as dozens of collectors display glass insulators used for telegraph and power lines in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Dalton Freight Depot is located at 305 S. Depot Street, Dalton, GA 30720.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The actress who played the secretary to Frank Underwood in "House of Cards" has died. Elizabeth Norment was 61 -- and Netflix has confirmed that she passed away. The online video streaming service didn't provide details like when and how she died. But the show's co-creator Beau Willimon describes her as "a talented actress, a warm soul and a good friend to us all." Norment was the aide to the ethically challenged, politically driven character played by Kevin Spacey in the hit series. She appeared as a guest star in a number of other TV shows, including "ER," "Doogie Howser, MD," "Party of Five" and "Law & Order." Her movie credits include work in "The Woman in Red" and "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion."

NEW YORK (AP) -- Like many of the show's viewers, Monica Potter says she isn't ready to give up "Parenthood." She says she has been lobbying the show's creator to find another outlet for the NBC series, now in its final season. Even though she has suggested the show find a home on Netflix or Hulu, Potter says she realizes that's unlikely. Some cast members cut their salaries to help the show meet its budget for this season and even a move to an online site would mean the cast gets paid. Potter says she loves working with the cast because they're like family. As she says she'd prefer that the show end while people still enjoy it -- instead of having the audience wonder why the show lingered on too long.
Actress Monica Potter says she's suggested possible outlets for "Parenthood," but thinks the NBC show is reaching the end of the line.
