I'm looking for reference material on the Florida Southern. Can you recommend anything beyond the few pages in Prince's book on the ACL and its predecessors?

Thanks Don and Bill. I am going to order Bulletine #86 in a few minutes and will check out the photo site later this AM.

The Railroad & Locomotive Historical Society published a bulletin (#86) many years ago that featured the history of Florida's pre 1900 railroads that had a very good section on the Florida Southern. This bulletin has been reprinted by the Southeast chapter and can be purchased for $13.95 plus $3.00 postage for one book and $1.00 for each additional book. Where to write to? Southeast Chapter, P.O. Box 664, Jacksonville, FL 32201.
