Historic Palm Beach – brought to you by the Palm Beach Post » “No tears shed as FEC passenger service succumbs”

Forty-five years ago tomorrow, the last passenger train ran on the FEC tracks. Apparently the event was done with little fanfare. Click title for link to small description on the Historic Palm Beach page maintained by the Palm Beach Post. Here is a picture from the day.
Of course, now there is going to be the high-speed train service between Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-West Palm Beach and Orlando, as well as plans for a commuter train to be run by the same organization that runs Tri-Rail along the same tracks.
