I live on ORANGE BLOSSOM RD. in Naples Florida....is there any connection to the famous train with the same name.
The road adjacent to ours was paved over old RR tracks but we are on the west coast of FL and I was wondering if there was a connection.

It's very likely. The first Orange Blossom Special arrived in Naples on Jan. 7, 1927, amid quite a bit of hoopla and celebration. SAL's extension to Naples had also just been opened. The Society's OBS book has full details.
