How rail transformed the state of Florida: the history and what to expect in the future

About the video: "Take a look at how rail travel has transformed through history. In the Early 20th Century the Florida population was booming and Flagler's rail brought travelers to the area. The Florida East Coast Railroad ran from Jacksonville to Key West. During this time south Florida was among the most popular destinations.
