We all know Florida for its famous theme parks but whilst on holiday why not experience the rich diversity and modes of railroading on central Florida''s A-Line (Atlantic Coast Line) and S-Line (Seaboard Coast Line). Filmed over several days in November 2002 we look extensively at 6 hotspot locations such as Plant City interlocking where unit trains from the Bone Valley phosphate mines, plus the coal trains from West Virginia and Kentucky can be seen.
Also captured is the most photographed and chased unit train in Florida, the Tropicana juice train. The giant CSX Corporation is the dominant railroad provider in Florida, and their motive power consists of EMD GP39, SD40, 60, 70 and many more.
