Nice report CRD. I enjoy your local switching pictures. You must have some patience waiting for the right opportunities to get pictures.

It's a good variety on CSX and Amtrak in that part of Florida. I've been down a few times to visit my parents.

Plant City has the railroad museum and viewing platform to visit. They also had a classic car show at the depot once a month, well back in 2019 anyway.

Well darn CRD, I was in Florida all of March. Would have been fun to meet up with you again. I was in Kissimmee near Disney. I didn't get to see much rail as my wife did all the driving and doesn't like to stop. I did see the Auto Train in Sanford. FUN!

CSX might not have much going to Bradenton due to the problems near Port Manatee.

US-41 has been closed and the railroad tracks are very close to the roadway.
