Re: Shipping sugar cane by rail...

George Eichelberger

The sides are hinged at the top, the unloading track tips, the cane falls out.

There are still many miles of sugar cane trackage around Lake Okeechobee. A short line operates on the ex-FEC branch to South Bay, the ex-ACL line down from Sebring and the US Sugar Co trackage at Bryant. The South Central Florida Railroad's modern shop is rebuilding one of the USSC, ex FEC 4-6-2 for operation. There are trains running constantly during the harvest.
