    Unfortunately, according to the schedule of daily resumptions, the Florida trains will be among the last of the long-distance trains to do so, let alone for the Cardinal and Sunset Limited which will still be tri-weekly after all is said and done. With Walt Disney World celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, why were the Florida trains not given a higher priority?
