The extraordinary story of the Florida East Coast Railway, America's most exciting railroad.
Speedway to Sunshine begins with the construction of the Florida East Coast Railway and explores the unfortunate demise and destruction of the fabled Key West Extension. Also covering developments up to the present day, this is the modern ongoing story of the great state of Florida. Speedway to Sunshine rapidly sold out its hardcover print run.
Florida historian Seth Bramson, who has been associated with the railroad for more than 50 years, takes the reader behind the scenes and tells the tales of the great Florida boom, the subsequent bust and ensuing bankruptcy, and the vicious hurricanes and equally vicious sabotage attempts following the strike of 1963.
In recent years the railroad has evolved and is now the single most important element behind the innovation of Florida's transportation system. A Florida without the FEC is simply unthinkable, and the fabled story continues to develop.
Lavishly illustrated with more than 450 photographs, Speedway to Sunshine is the first official history of the FEC. It will fascinate general readers, railroad buffs and anyone interested in the exciting history of the "Sunshine State."
From the Author:
Speedway to Sunshine is the first and only complete history of the fabled Florida East Coast Railway. It's predecessors go back to 1885, and it's creator, of course, was the legendary Henry M. Flagler. In this 352 page book, the story is told from the very beginning -- going back to the earliest predecessor -- to late 2001. Even for those who are not railroad buffs but have an interest in Florida's long and glorious history, the photos alone make the book worthwhile. With over 400 photos -- many published for the first time, Speedway to Sunshine is, indeed THE story of the FEC and the men and women who, through more than 120 years, have made this great and still in existence railway the single finest, most respected, and most imitated railroad in America.
