    Rail in the Keys?

    Sometime in the distant past, an unnamed storm took out the railroad serving the Florida Keys. The rail bed and the bridges were purloined by a road project and most everyone assumed that railroading in the Keys would never return. However there is some thought about bringing light rail back...
