Today only the CSX tracks remain here, but in this view we see how the two railroads once crossed. In this view you are looking south and the road is CR 18

Brad Lowans General I was working as an extra dispatcher on the CSX Tampa Division AC desk the Saturday the NS had their last move over this line. They were hauling a large transformer and I believe they needed to take down the signals at this crossing in order to clear the wide load. On your model board it always showed the intersecting NS line as a diamond. I had no idea that there were two turnouts involved! I never reviewed this terriory prior to marking up. 9/6/2011 11:47:35 PM
