Speedway to Sunshine
The Story of the Florida East Coast Railway

By Seth H. Bramson  


Speedway to Sunshine

Florida historian Seth Bramson, who has been associated with the railroad for more than 50 years, takes the reader behind the scenes of the Florida East Coast Railway 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. 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." Softbound, 8-1/2" x 11", 352 pages.
