$ 20.95

The Seaboard Coast Line was created on July 1, 1967 following the merger of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad with the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Following the merger, the combined system totaled 9,809 miles, making it the eighth largest in the United States at the time. On January 1, 1983, SCL became the Seaboard System Railroad as a result of the merger with the Louisville & Nashville and the Clinchfield after years of being marketed together as the Family Lines System." The company merged with Chessie System in 1986 to form CSX Transportation.

This book documents operations throughout Florida from the merger of SAL and ACL until the early CSX era. Rare shop, yard, freight and passenger scenes. Careful attention is paid to equipment rosters, with a focus on motive power. Fans of Southeastern railroading will not want to miss the rich documentation of scenes that have largely disappeared from today's operations. Old branch lines, stately depots, and jointed rail are all captured for posterity, as are the latest high-horsepower diesels, long unit freights, and heavy mainlines.
