[FlaRRHistory] Former Right of Ways: What are they now?
. . .
Greene Cove Springs was the home of quite a few railroads and loggers and the abandon lines radiated from all directions.
The narrow gauge common carrier Green Cove Springs & Melrose ran SW to Melrose with logging branches stretching to the south. The standard gauge Dowling-Shands Lumber Co. logged towards the East and NE. When they logged out about 1920 the Florida Farms & Industries bought the railroad and the logged out land and they operated lines to Longbranch, Bordenville & Taterville. They sold farms and operated a dairy and cannery.
I have a timetable and map here of the GCS&M:
I can send you some vintage maps if you email me direct.
