    Here's a hint- a large chunk of its traffic is tied to one single commodity.

    Looks like it's a southeastern railroad

    You've got to give us a tutorial on how you narrow down all these possibilities! :D

    You are just too darn good= congrats!

    It is indeed the Sandersville Railroad, located in Sandersville, GA. Its main commodity is kaolin, and interchanges with Norfolk Southern at Tennille, a few miles south.

    Hmm, not sure that's gonna happen :D.

    Well OK, first of all, engine facilities are alot easier than a random location somewhere, they are allways (most often) located in populated areas. Second, there are other sources of help on the internet that can be of help to narrow down the location - RR Company websites, Wikipedia and one of my favorites thedieselshop.us for coloring of locos, enginebrands (ALCO's, GE and EMD etc.) Third, colors of the picture displayed vary a lot.
    Fourth, naaah that must be enough for you, this last one I'll keep to my self a little while yet :D.

    Bonus: The feel of where the location is often a good start to begin the search.
