Promoting passenger trains as a transportation alternative in Florida since 1983.  We are citizens who advocate for Amtrak, commuter rail, intercity rail and transit for Florida's future.

National Train Day

I wanted to take this time to thank all the wonderful members who not only took time out to attend this event but help make it such a resounding success.

I have not seen this much excitement at Tampa Union Station since the re-opening / re-dedication ceremony back in 1998. Whether a rail fan or just a spectator, you could see and feel the electricity in the air where people were venturing everywhere in order to take it all in. From the main hall with all the displays to the platforms’ and an opportunity to tour the Superliner equipment that Amtrak supplied.

The Florida Coalition of Rail Passengers is starting to really make a name for itself and I am very proud to not only be associated with all of you but appreciate the faith you have in myself and the rest of our officers.
