Mable - Tarrytown railroad?



Thanks for the reply! How long did it last? I wonder if CSX is
kicking themselves for abandoning the Coleman-Auburndale line - I
heard that the S line will get busier if the Commuter service for
Orlando gets done.

It served a lumber mill where SR 471 crossed the old railroad at
Tarrytown, just a bit south of SR 50. The sawmill may still be there.
The railroad ran about a mile or two where it connected with the old
Coleman to Auburndale line. I used to see that little engine parked
on the east side of 471 opposite the lumber mill back in the early

Hi All:

Does anyone have information on the Altras railroad (I believe
what is would be called) that was supposed to go from Mabel to
Tarrytown. I wonder if the railline was ever in operation - and
was the freight on it. Thanks!!
