It is not likely that any passenger service anywhere would be a "money maker". It would be a huge improvement over the
present CSX route via Orland, much shorter, better track with the probability of higher overall speeds, much more scenic
route and serving important east coast resorts and cities. This should be the number one priority for railroad passenger
operations in the State of Florida but I don't know if it is. Unfortunately the leadership does not grasp it in so far as
railroad service is concerned in this state and the highway lobby is very strong.
