It’s owned by the state of Florida (previously CSX). It’s a mix of single and double main. The track is used by Sunrail for local commuter service, Amtrak, and periodically CSX (Autoracks, S-line diversions, manifests that serve Rands and staff, coal trains for Orlando, and rock trains for two different Conrad yelvington plants

    Yards such as Taft yard, Kaley Yard (used to service Conrad yelvington Orlando), and Rands Yard.

    This route could be used to introduce Amtrak P42DCs and the Amtrak Auto Racks, as the Amtrak auto train terminates in Sanford-Rands.

    There’s really too much stuff to list to what the Central Florida Rail Corridor could offer to TSW players. It’s really something else.

    I'd like a CSX ET44AH, ES44AC, SD70ACe, AC6000CW, SD70MAC, or SD80MAC for heavy freights, a Genset switcher, and the P42DC Genesis for passenger duties. The Sunrail commuter trains should be included.

    That's way too many. Plus CSX don't operate sd70ace's no more. And haven't the AC6000CW been sold to progress rail.
