    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Waldo was my home station when I was in college in the 1970's. Waldo is bringing back memories of fun times. :)

    It looks like Track a Train may be fairly accurate.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Although I had enough notice, the train was traveling faster than I expected and I got delayed because of the zoom virtual birthday party for my great nephew. It is hard enough for me to multitask, but really hard when it involves technology and losing a signal in a stair well, having to mute...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Thanks. I still have my "indoor" clothing on now, and will wait until I hear from you before I put my "outdoor" clothing on and make my way to the tracks. It is 91 degrees outside, so I do not want to arrive too early and stand in sun.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Do you think it will leave SFA at 4pm and pass WPK around 4:30?

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    WOW WOW WOW WOW. Hopefully it will be earlier than 10:47pm like the nortbound train. At the rate the AT was traveling the other day, I think it should take about 10 minutes to reach my crossing from WPK. I am guessing 30-40 minutes from SFA. My great nephew's virtual first birthday party on...

    Silver Meteor to terminate at Jacksonville in 3/29

    There was an Auto Train derailment a couple of days ago. Since then, 97 has been terminating in JAX and 98 has been originating in JAX. I believe they are still repairing the tracks. I do not think it has anything to do with quarantines (however, we Floridians are not anxious to have New...

    They are migrating for Easter and to avoid Florida's 9 month long summer. It is already in the 90's here in Orlando, and The Villages can be warmer. The Villages may not be so safe. They just started testing there, so the results should be in soon.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    It was moving pretty slowly but I saw it. WOW WOW WOW! Thanks for heads up. I took some photos that turned out pretty poorly. I had to jog home and made it with 2 minutes to spare. I am now wide awake, but thrilled to have seen the Auto Train in Orlando, right down the street from where I live. 😍

    I’m walking to the tracks. I may have to run home.

    I am unable to follow it on Track a Train now, so do not know if it will get here before the curfew. :(

    SunRail (Florida DOT) tracks go as far as Debary, I think. DeLand is northeast of Debary.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    I live less than a mile from the tracks, however, we have a curfew starting at 11pm and cannot leave home between 11pm and 5am. Although my window faces west, the direction of the tracks, my apartment is not high enough for me to see the tracks. I can usually hear trains, so that may be what I...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    WOW. A friend told me that it may go all the way down near Lakeland/Dade City to get to the main line. I live in Orlando, and would love to see it pass, however, I think I will be asleep.
