Keith and Sherrie: A great source for the locations of railroad depots (existing and gone)is the Comprehensive Railroad Atlas of North America. Sources for the Atlas are Trains Magazine (Milwaukee, WI.) and Green Frog Productions (Atlanta, GA.). Sherrie, regarding your question about the location of the Montbrook, FL. station---- The Atlas depicts the existence of two stations--one was SAL and the other was ACL--in the same vicinity about 5 miles south of the town of Williston, Fl. Both stations are no longer in existence. Aaron Dowling

I am looking for information on a ACL depot that was located in a town called Montbrook Florida that no longer exists. The town was originally called Ambler and was changed renamed Phoenix in 1891 until it again changed it's name to Montbrook in 1899. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am most interested in Putnam, St Johns, Alachua, Marion and Clay counties. Any line. Can someone suggest a map source that would have this information?

Keith, could you give some specifics. What railroad, mainline, between where and where. I can provide you with details on the SAL from Plant City to Wildwood.
