ok this is for people with excellent South Florida transportation knowledge...this may no pertain to airplanes but it has to do with MIA and it is really troubling me!
Around MIA there are several railroad tracks...for example...on the west end of 9R/27L there are two tracks (also one or two that extend all the way down that south runway however they look abondoned and I've never seen a train on them)...the tracks swoop around near the Palmetto Expressway (826) and then to a yard north of the airport...my question has to do with this picture:
What in the world is FEC (Florida East Coast Railway) doing pulling passenger coaches (look in the background)!!!! There are no major maintnence (train) facilities south of the airport and I doubt there is any passenger service either...only freight trains operate to homestead on the ex-Seaboard line...this really perplexes me so if anyone knows, please share!!!!
I know this really isn't aviation realted so to do so.....was there any ever train service to MIA??? (stupid question but this topic needs some realtionship to aviation)...probably in the last 10 years b/c the jet is a 744...
