Slavia, Florida

Tom Yorke
 

Can anybody here tell me what rail line ran through Slavia, FL during the years 1917 to about 1929? I have a photo of a semi-enclosed depot shelter at that spot, near Oviedo and Orlando and would like to know what line it was on.
Thanks,
Tom Yorke

Hey Tom,
That would be Seaboard Air Line.
