This program shows over twenty-four hours of action on both of CSX’s main lines from Jacksonville to Tampa and Miami in north-central Florida in October of 2011. These lines are better known as the “S” and “A” Lines, referring to their Seaboard Airline and Atlantic Coast Line ancestry respectively. Both lines are in for big changes in the next two years as the State just purchased sixty-one miles of the “A” Line around Orlando for use as a commuter line. Several CSX trains will be transferred to the “S” Line and additional capacity will be added. Both lines are mostly single-track, high-speed, high capacity lines with long sidings about ten miles apart and centralized traffic control. Six Amtrak trains also run on this part of the “A” Line. With housing starts and construction way down, this program shows how CSX is coping with the great recession, and as you will see, traffic on these lines has held up fairly well. CSX "S" and "A" Lines in North-Central Florida is 76 minutes in length. This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
